Existing policies and needs: Making an inventory

Many countries have policies and programmes aimed at advancing the ICT sector. These might include providing e-government services, improving healthcare with ICTs, equipping schools with computer labs, offering e-agricultural programmes, implementing digital literacy missions, promoting digital transformation plans and many other priorities. Sometimes these policies are coordinated. More often they are developed independently. The purpose of this chapter is to capture and assess these policies and programmes as an important starting point for the development of a comprehensive digital skills strategy. This chapter also includes tools related to inventory and to the assessment of existing policies and programmes.
