About ICT4Gov

This is a place where practitioners in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for better governance can gather to discuss their initiatives. The World Bank Institute is facilitating such initiatives in a number of pilot projects. We also invite anyone interested in how to improve participatory governance through the use of ICT to join and help animate the discussions.
