On 7-11 July, the United Nations Asian and Pacific Training Centre for ICT for Development (UN-APCICT) will launch the Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders (Academy) and the Primer Series on ICTD for Youth (Primer), in Kathmandu Nepal. These roll-outs of UN-APCICT’s ICT for development (ICTD) human capacity building flagship programmes have been achieved in collaboration with the Ministry of General Administration of Nepal (MOGA) and Kathmandu University for the Academy and Primer respectively.

 

The Primer Series on ICTD for Youth roll-out will be followed by a two-day workshop on Project Management and ICTD for over 40 professors from 4 universities, as well as representatives from the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh. The workshop will strengthen the Primer series curricula adoption and implementation in universities in Nepal.

 

 

A four-day workshop on e-Government Applications and Project Management will be held after the launch of the Academy for over 30 participants including government officials from MOGA and representatives of national training institutions in Nepal. The workshop is an important step forward for the Nepalese government in supporting its plans to enhance its national human and institutional capacity on ICTD. The Academy modules will be used as part of the National Administration Staff College curricula to train government civil servants in various ICTD topics.
