The e-Governance Programme aims at delivering innovative capacity development programmes for government officials around the world on the topics related to using Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including mobile technologies, to provide efficient government management of information to citizens; better service delivery to citizens; empowerment of the people through access to information and participation in public decision-making.

In addition to promoting e-government, the e-Governance Programme strives for applying ICTs to enhance the capacities of the public sector and other actors in addressing human development issues and improving social policies. To meet this objective the Programme spearheads several partnerships with UN entities and other partners to develop e-learning products and services on governance, MDG-related and corporate social responsibility topics.
