Technology has the potential to unlock growth and prosperity in developing countries. Responding positively to technological change requires vision, purpose and strategy.
There will be winners and losers, and unless these trade-offs are carefully managed, it will be difficult to chart a course towards prosperity for everyone.
The Pathways Commission has been developing a digital strategy kit to provide a framework to support this process. The kit takes the issues and policy priorities outlined in our Charting Pathways report and presents a set of tools to help countries develop their own strategies. This involves a diagnostic component to assess digital readiness, as well as a series of dialogues to bring different stakeholders to the table.
Now is the time for countries to act to ensure that major technological change brings inclusive benefits across society. The Commission's digital strategy kit offers an approach to tackle this challenge. The kit will be finished towards the end of 2019, but you can download a working draft using the buttons below.
