This toolkit provides stakeholders with guidance on developing a digital skills strategy. It is intended for policymakers, along with partners in the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and academia. Its overarching aim is to facilitate the development of a comprehensive digital skills strategy at country level. Readers will find practical information, examples, and stepbystep guides which they can use to develop their national digital skills strategy as well as policies and programmes to address specific priorities. Chapters 38 include tools that policymakers and stakeholders can use in developing ideas specifically for their country or context. An editable Word version of these tools is attached to the PDF version of this Toolkit which can be accessed by clicking on the paperclip attachment icon in the left navigation bar.



Skilling up for our digital future

We are living in the midst of a digital revolution. More people are connected to the Internet than ever before, using digital devices and services for work and for all aspects of their life. In part this has been fuelled by the rise of mobile broadband, which every day ensures the participation of more people in developing countries in the digital economy. New technologies have also proliferated over the past decade – some even more recently – artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, Internet of Things, machine learning, mobile applications, nanotechnology and 3D printing among others. These will drive profound change in our daily lives over the coming decade, radically altering how we consume, produce and work. And, as with all transformational changes, they present us with great opportunity – and significant challenge too.
