The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Land Use Planning Map of a Rwandan Cell

This land use planning map of a Rwandan cell shows the cadastral plan, schools, hospitals and infrastructure on a nicely designed base map. 2000+ of these maps were printed and distributed to their respective cells to inform the local administrators and the population (who do not have access to internet and the National Land Use Planning Portal) on the development guidelines in place for their area.

The maps were presented and explained at an official launch. This enabled the local cell administrators to proudly display the maps at their offices and engage in discussions with the inhabitants of the cell and other stakeholders.
