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.

After the Nepal Earthquake of 2015, Microsoft and UNDP collaborated on innovative ways to rebuild and respond quickly.  Working with a local team at the Microsoft Innovation Center (MIC) Nepal, UNDP is creating a mobile application that tracks and coordinates logistics, personnel and payments to help administrate the rebuilding effort, storing critical records both on-premises and in the cloud. While the approach was borne from the necessity of extreme circumstances, it may literally redefine the administration of humanitarian aid, and recovery and reconstruction efforts when the next inevitable disaster occurs. Through this process, they have employed over 3,000 local people, accomplished over 2,000 safe demolitions, and from those we’ve recovered $11 million worth of recyclable material.
