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.

Co-Creation Lab 2/Session 3: Co-Creating an ICT-Supported Strategy to Increase Women's Participation in Governance Process with SITE Enterprises of Kenya LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

By now we'll have had some sessions introducing SITE enterprises and the actors involved with their co-creation challenge and we're have got to grips with the context and relevant tactics to tackle the challenge. Now it's the nitty gritty of identifying suitable communication channels and tools which would be appropriate in serving this problem in this context.

Don't be put off if you didn't join us before, we hope the Co-Creation Lab will be like a beehive. You can drop in for a while or stay with us for the day.

To recap: at the Co-Creation Lab within the Accountability, Governance and Human Rights track, we are providing a space to start with a current socio-political challenge. This one is coming from SITE enterprises Kenya who are partnering with Oxfam on an EU urban project where we are exploring how we can use ICT to increase women's participation in governance process in Nairobi, with a focus on the informal settlements. SITE are interested in sharing their work in Garissa and Kisii where they are using radio to share information and build capacity of camel traders. There is scope to extend the applications of ICT which we can work in the co-creation session to establish.

Together with strategy experts, transparency and accountability professionals, as well as toolmakers and storytellers we will craft strategies involving ICT components. Whether you've experienced similar challenge or you're a strategist, toolmaker or digital activist - we need you to join us!
