Improving governance and public administration has become a priority for sustainable socio– economic development. It has been recognized that no development can take place without sound and capable governance. In this perspective, most countries have initiated improvements to public services aimed at the implementation of good governance. It has also been recognized that in any setting, public or private, small or large, the efficient use of information and communications technology (ICT) can significantly improve institutional and organizational performance. This is also true for public administration and governance where ICT can simplify procedures, accelerate communication and facilitate decision- and policy-making.
The Curriculum Guide aims to provide basic knowledge on the use of e-governance and its importance to society. In particular, it examines the basics of e-governance and security measures; e-governance laws and policies; and the economy of e-governance. In addition, models of best practices in e-governance will be taught. The guide aims to develop the ability and skills necessary for employees to use e-governance in their country, in local vernacular languages where applicable.
