eGovernment Strategy Afghanistan
An Outcome of Developing Electronic Governance in Afghanistan, Assessment, Strategy, Implementation EGOV.AF Project
Afghanistan aims at establishing itself as the central interconnection point of goods, ideas, services and people in the fast-expanding Asian economy. Given its location, natural wealth and expanding economy, it is poised towards the vision of becoming a “peaceful meeting place of civilisation”. In pursuit of this vision, the Government of Afghanistan recognizes that quality public services, good governance, rule of law, human rights and public engagement are imperative.
In recognition of the importance of EGOV, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) initiated the development and implementation of a comprehensive EGOV strategy to support the economic, social and governance needs of Afghanistan. As part of this initiative, MCIT engaged United Nations University- International Institute for Software Technology- Center for Electronic Governance (UNU-IIST-EGOV) to jointly implement the Electronic Government Development for Afghanistan (EGOV.AF) project.
This document is an outcome of this project. It presents a strategic planning process and a draft national EGOV Strategy for Afghanistan that resulted from this process.download eGovernment Strategy Afghanistan
