digitalisation

Access to information, digital means and communication

 

Digitalization fosters participation, education, connectivity, and innovation by providing access to essential hardware and software.

Digitalization serves as a catalyst for transformation in developing countries, fostering economic growth, improving education and healthcare, enhancing governance, promoting financial inclusion, advancing agriculture, and fostering social inclusion. By leveraging digital technologies, developing countries can address key challenges, bridge development gaps, and build a more sustainable and inclusive future.

Recognizing its transformative potential for countries of the Global South, BEGECA offers comprehensive consultancy, procurement, and logistics services for a wide range of information and communication technology (ICT) solutions.

BEGECA's services include:

We place a strong emphasis on the responsible use of information and communication technology, as well as related media and channels. This commitment is reflected in our partnership with institutions that share our values. To uphold these principles, we have developed a comprehensive Code of Conduct. This code outlines our commitment to:

- Promoting basic human rights: Ensuring that digitalization efforts respect and promote fundamental human rights for all individuals.
- Good governance: Advocating for the rule of law, transparency, and the fight against corruption in all ICT-related initiatives.
- Participation: Encouraging inclusive participation in digital initiatives, ensuring that all voices are heard and considered.
- Data privacy: Protecting personal data and ensuring that digital systems and practices adhere to strict privacy standards.
- Children’s rights: Safeguarding the rights and well-being of children in all digital interactions and platforms.

By adhering to this Code of Conduct, we strive to ensure that our digitalization efforts are not only effective and innovative but also ethical and aligned with the broader goals of human rights and sustainable development.
