Background and rationale
Despite real progress on many fronts, there remains a dramatic disparity in levels of human development. The international community has agreed on key development goals which should be reached by 2015, halving the number of people living in poverty, providing universal primary education, improving health and sanitation, combating HIV/AIDS, enhancing the empowerment of women, reversing the loss of environmental resources.
Over the last decade, information and communication technologies (ICT) have been increasingly used to achieve development goals. Developing countries, including poorer ones, have enjoyed rapid technological progress to help pull millions of people out of poverty. ICTs help transform economic and social activities for companies, governments and citizens.
South Africa is also feeling the effects of the current world economic recession with increased retrenchments, lower productivity and decreased spending. Government priorities are to focus on education, jobs, health, rural development and safety and security. Together with corporate and other institutions it is focusing on improving service delivery in education, health and social services, creating employment and community development. An important focus is on developing a skilled workforce that will support economic growth and job creation.
This conference focuses on the use of technology and how it can transform lives, support economies and service delivery, focusing on Government's priority programmes:
Education - Expanding education opportunities through technology and training
Crime and Corruption
This two day conference will unpack these issues by bringing together a number of industry leaders to chart the way forward.
The conference will facilitate open and robust discussion on all economic, social and business and technology issues.
