Inclusive Digital Development Workshop
July 19-21, 2021
The Inclusive Digital Development Workshop was the third in a successful annual series in which the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and U.K. Research and Innovation (UKRI) brought together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to address systemic barriers that limit the potential impact of research and innovation in international development.
The topic of Inclusive Digital Development reflects our growing awareness that the data and digital revolution brings a number of potential gains for developing countries. To ensure that this revolution serves all members of society, not just those who are already digitally empowered, the development community must navigate a number of challenging questions around fairness, marginalization, and equity. This fits with the principles outlined in the UKRI AI Review and USAID’s Digital Strategy.
