Project ID 263RAS1001

This Joint Programme adopts an inter-sectoral approach to digital transformation in Kiribati, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Nauru and Palau, towards the achievement of the SDGs. This is done through promoting inclusive policy and legislative framework for digital transformation; and improving access and connectivity through pilots in remote islands, to enhance access to social services and the enjoyment of human rights. UNESCO provides Education and Communication Information interventions through policy review and pilot digital skills development related to ICT in Education and Access to Information to ensure equitable access by all, including persons with disabilities.
