IGF 2019 OF #9 Strengthening Digital Ecosystem for Better Digital Inclusion

Description: 

In today's digital era, certainty and guarantee for digital inclusion is needed. Digital inclusion is a framework for assessing and considering access to opportunities in a digital era. Digital inclusion requires availability: a). availability of high-speed internet access infrastructure, b). digital literacy education program for acceleration of adoption, and c). information technology specifically in the form of online service platforms and useful applications.

Of course the three things above require a very strong adhesive, in the form of multi-stakeholder collaboration work. Multistakeholde work of course has become something that is accepted and appreciated by various parties as a way of being transparent, accountable and legitimate in order to achieve common goals. Internet access, digital literacy and information technology services, along with multistakeholder collaborative work form an ecosystem, a digital ecosystem, which of course will differ in challenges and opportunities from one country to another.

For this reason, it is necessary to exchange ideas and brainstorming from related parties so that collaborative work in each country can strengthen the digital ecosystem, and of course, ultimately can support the realization of digital inclusion.
