Following the publication of the WSIS Regional Stocktaking series for the period 2014-2016 and its popular reception within the WSIS community, we have prepared new edition of the WSIS Regional Stocktaking with the special focus on how ICTs are helping advance the Sustainable Development Goals on the ground. Our objective is to have a customized reporting by region (based on six ITU regions distribution) that will be considered as a strong reference point to good ICT practices implemented by the different stakeholders (government, private sector, civil society, academia, international organizations, others), generating social impact, partnerships, replicable examples, and advance the achievement of the SDGs.



ICT Applications

In Bangladesh, the Computer Council established the National Enterprise Architecture Project. The Bangladesh Computer Council is one of the apex bodies of the Government of Bangladesh that has been instrumental in carving the path for the development of e-Governance in Bangladesh over the last two decades. At present, the Council is in the process of ensuring the success of eGovernance in Bangladesh through the establishment of the National Enterprise Architecture and the e-Government Interoperability Framework (e-GIF). This architecture and e-GIF would be the foundation for successful ICT implementation of e-services in the Government. To realize the vision and mission of the Government of establishing “Digital Bangladesh” by the year 2021 through building efficient, transparent and citizen-centric government services, termed as “e-services” through ICT, defining the National Enterprise Architecture and e-GIF for Bangladesh has been one of the key priority projects undertaken (SDGs 8, 9 and 16). The objective of this project is to assist the Government of Bangladesh through the Bangladesh Computer Council to design, develop, deploy and use the National Enterprise Architecture and e-GIF to develop strategies, processes, plans, structures, technologies and systems across the Government, thereby developing an environment that enables the government agencies to achieve their key objectives and outcomes through increased interoperability, better asset management, reduced risk and lower procurement costs.
