This guidebook can be used to determine the existing supply of a digitally skilled cohort at a national level, to assess skills demand from industry and other sectors, to identify skills gaps, and to develop policies to address future digital skills requirements. A must-have for policy-makers and other stakeholders.




Digital transformation is rapidly driving changes in labour markets in almost every sector, as diverse as agriculture, education, environment, finance, health, trade, transportation, tourism and the environment, among others, creating an increasing need for countries to develop a digitally skilled population to be competitive and employable in the global society and economy. In order to accomplish this, policy-makers must identify current digital skills levels and understand what digital skills are necessary to meet current and future needs in their countries. Each country will choose to engage with digital transformation in its own way; but, to do so, policy-makers need to understand their country’s technological assets, challenges and opportunities.
