We know that the rapid spread of COVID-19 has had a profoundly disruptive impact on global commerce, government and society. For Caribbean states, the existing small population sizes, resource constraints and vulnerable infrastructure have only amplified the challenges of confronting this once-in-a-century crisis. However, the current pandemic is not the only threat to Caribbean economies and society. There is also the reality of an annual hurricane season, showing that for the region, each crisis contributes to a cumulative vulnerability to sustainable Caribbean development. How can information and communication technology (ICT) be employed to mitigate these vulnerabilities?
By focusing on the principles of 21st Century Government, the ARIN-CTU Webinar Series will provide answers to these and other questions relating to ICT-enabled development, and sensitise policy makers and leaders both within governments and in the private sector, on actions that can be taken to mitigate risks and maximise opportunities for regional societies.
In this Webinar, speakers will address the following topics:
- Accelerating Digital Transformation in the Caribbean
- Leadership Imperatives for Caribbean Digital Transformation and
Lessons from Around the Globe
- Measuring and Analysing Transformation II - A Statisticians Toolkit
Join us and help define how we, together, navigate the New Caribbean Normal.
