Digital government services are vital for fostering economic growth, developing the digital economy, promoting trust in and accountability of government institutions. Especially in low-resource settings, governments struggle to adopt new technologies for the digitization of public services due to budget constraints, lacking coordination between agencies and siloed investments in digitization through donors.
To address these challenges the GovStack Initiative was launched by Estonia, Germany, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) in 2020. Based on the experience of digital champions such as Estonia, GovStack invests in developing reusable software components – so called building blocks. These help governments to reduce costs and save when creating e-government services.
During the Digital Gateway Online Event you will learn how GovStack works in practice. The focus will be on the following guiding questions:
- How does GovStack accelerate the digitization of government services?
• What role do the various stakeholders in the digital for development ecosystem play?
• How can your organization or project benefit from the GovStack initiative?
We are looking forward to having you in our online event!
