Digital Development Partnership, DDP


The Trust Fund is established to implement the Recommendations of the World Development Report (WDR) 2016. The minimum Budget of this Digital Development Partnership (DDP) Trust Fund is 5 Million USD between 2016-2018. DDP focuses on five objectives: - Digital adoption index - Digital economy enabling environment - Internet access for all - Digital government - Mainstreaming digital innovation. During the ongoing preparation phase, the World Bank is keen to seek inputs from potential clients, partners, and donors on strategic orientation and priority topics to be covered in the DDP work program. This is thematically linked to the US Global Connect Initiative to which we are going to give our political support (launch on April 14, 2016 before the World Bank Group Spring Meetings). One of the objectives of the Initiative is to influence on digital development and that especially the work regarding access to internet is prioritized in development finance institutions.
