The Global Digital Development Forum was inspired by the ICTworks post, Coronavirus Canceled Your Conference – Let’s Organize a Virtual Event, which led to a vibrant discussion on how we could develop a virtual ICT4D conference.

From that conversation emerged the desire to build on previous USAID Digital Development Forums in Ghana, India, El Salvador, Zambia, and the United States and expand both the focus and participation beyond any specific donor or country, to include a global audience of LMIC practitioners.

USAID, Chemonics, Save the Children, TechChange, IntraHealth International, CRS and the ICT4D Conference, and the Digital Impact Alliance agreed to co-organize the event around major themes important to international development with a variety of staff supporting this event.

Organizing Committee Staff included the following:

USAID

Catholic Relief Services

Chemonics

Digital Impact Alliance

IntraHealth International

Save the Children

TechChange
