This report introduces the conceptualisation of progress towards policy coherence by means of a three-phase cycle, with each phase of the cycle supported primarily by one of three building blocks: (i) political commitment and policy statements; (ii) policy coordination mechanisms; and (iii) systems for monitoring, analysis and reporting.
This publication draws on discussion papers prepared for the workshop Policy Coherence in the Application of Information and Communication Technologies for Development, held on 11-12 September 2009. It examines some of the main challenges in closing the discrepancies in access to ICTs and use of ICTs between countries.
