GovStack is a community-driven initiative with a mission to accelerate the digitalization of government services for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) particularly in low-resource settings. To achieve this mission, we focus on making it easier for governments to adopt, deploy and scale technologies best suited for citizen services.
The collaboration establishes a global high-level framework to assist countries in learning and implementing scalable digital solutions and applications in a cost-efficient, accelerated, and integrated manner. These solutions are built applying best software development principles and best countries’ experiences and practices and in doing so, we rely on the collective expertise of digital champions from various corners of the public sector and the development and technology ecosystems.
We are in the process of implementing a “Reference Digital Government Platform” as a digital public good based on reusable, standards-based, secure, and interoperable ICT components. Reducing the time and effort needed to introduce new digital services will allow digital services to be scaled up and upgraded in a more agile and cost-effective manner. This will facilitate delivering solutions that best meet citizens’ needs and expectations of a seamless, consistent, and connected experience across the spectrum of e-government services, regardless of their location, income, or literacy level.
