Good Governance for Digital Policies: How to Get the Most Out of ICT

 

Publication Date:
12/07/2010

Pages: 220 

The launch of this report marks the culmination of a year-long review on the results of Spain’s comprehensive strategy for ICT and Information Society policy.

Plan Avanza has created a large-scale information society agenda addressing the need for international and inter-regional convergence in ICT access and use, and greater integration of citizens, businesses and the public administration into the information society.

While acknowledging the important achievements made in each of these groups - as well as in the sectors of Education, Health, and Justice - the review identifies areas where policy gaps remain and how further progress could be made to improve co-ordination and cost-effectiveness. 

The Report was launched on 12 July 2010 and presented in the presence of Mr. Francisco Ros, Spain’s Secretary of State of Telecommunications and the Information Society, to key Plan Avanza stakeholders - including several ministries, regional and local governments, civil society organisations and representatives of the ICT sector.

Draft Recommendations from the Report


The proposed draft recommendations highlight the need to continue to invest in Information Society policies as a driver of future growth and competiveness. In particular, the draft recommendations focus on the need for Plan Avanza to:

 

1. Exploit the transformative potential of ICTs in ways that contribute more strongly to economic recovery and long-term objectives for green growth and innovation;

 

2. Strike a greater balance between supply and demand-side policies (e.g. begin a shift from ICT diffusion, to a  stronger focus on ICT take-up and usage);

 

3. Consider ways of improving its cost-effectiveness in times of fiscal tightening- particularly by means of increased horizontal co-ordination and improved alignment of policy instruments to goals for inter-regional convergence and the closing of different kinds of digital divides.
