ICT Week - The Bahamas
Theme: Internet Imperatives for the Caribbean Single ICT Space
ICT Week and the 16th Caribbean Ministerial Strategic ICT Seminar will address the significant role that the Internet will play in laying a technological foundation and supporting the development of the Single ICT Space. It will first present the latest developments in the Internet, its technologies and its resources and their implications for social and economic development. The Seminar will explore the tremendous opportunities for growth and development that are available in cyberspace and the challenges currently experienced by Caribbean users in seizing them.
Given the recent
devastating destruction that occurred on several Caribbean territories after
the passage of severe storms and hurricanes, the region must ask itself: How
can we become less vulnerable? And how do we increase our resilience to the
unavoidable impacts of climate change? In light of this, participants will also
be introduced to strategies and actions, which can reduce the adverse effects
of natural disasters to enable faster and more effective recovery.
