ICT for Disaster Risk Management

The Academy of Information Communications Technology (ICT) Essentials for Government Leaders module series has been developed by the Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (APCICT) for:

  1. Policymakers at the national and local government level who are responsible for ICT policymaking;
  2. Government officials responsible for the development and implementation of ICT-based applications; and
  3. Managers in the public sector seeking to employ ICT tools for project management.

The module series aims to develop familiarity with the substantive issues related to ICTD from both a policy and technology perspective. The intention is not to develop a technical ICT manual. Rather, its purpose is to provide a good understanding of what the current digital technology is capable of achieving, where technology is headed and what this implies for policymaking. The topics covered by the modules have been identified through a training needs analysis and a survey of other training materials worldwide.
