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.

The Global Innovation Exchange (the Exchange) is an open-source platform co-created by over 100 partner organizations to freely share data and information and connect on ideas, innovations, funding opportunities, and expertise. The Exchange reduces the barrier to access useful information and it flips (upside down) the traditional development industry model of the supply-side driven approach. Now, more than ever, with increased connectivity, the demand-side can drive how we identify and address the challenges to end extreme poverty.

Learn how to join and leverage the Exchange to share your ideas, connect with your friends (and foes!), and collaborate with other stakeholders, entrepreneurs and innovators in your sector. The presentation and demonstration of the platform will give a comprehensive overview of the Exchange and user-behavior insights that show open-collaboration is trending upwards.
