'Technology for Governance' is a series of webinars that will explore how data-driven platforms and tools are being used to improve governance capabilities and enhance state capacity. The series is jointly hosted by NITI Aayog and the Data Governance Network, anchored by IDFC Institute.
The series will look at the multitude of ways in which governments across the world are using technological solutions to address governance problems. We plan to bring ideas and best practices from India and around the world to our audience.
The first session in the webinar series took place on 2 December, 2020. It focused on governments' use of technology in their COVID-19 response strategies — and the tension between addressing pandemic risks and protecting citizens' privacy and personal data. You can watch our recorded session here.
