Project Summary, Objectives and Results
Assisting the Government of Uzbekistan in the formulation and implementation of ICT for development policy. In 2002 the importance of developing Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and using ICTs for development of the country reached momentum and this issue became a national priority by special decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Improvement of infrastructure for more universal Internet connectivity continues with a steady pace. Public and private supported initiatives contribute to the creation and enrichment of information resources.
Still placing importance on technical aspects of ICT improvement, the Government increasingly shifts its emphasis at a wider usage of ICT for development purposes.
To support this initiative and to maintain valuable knowledge and experience of previous assistance in ICT area, UNDP and the Government of Uzbekistan came up with “Assisting the Government of Uzbekistan in the formulation and implementation of information and communication technologies for development policy” (“ICT Policy” – ICTP) project.
