The Principles for Digital Development are the distilled knowledge of hundreds of professionals and thousands of projects into nine best practice guidelines to improve the use of technology in development. The Digital Principles are currently endorsed by 88 organizations, including USAID, UNICEF, NDI, Grameen Foundation, IntraHealth International, SIDA, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and many more.
The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL), steward for the Digital Principles, is now promoting their adoption around the world. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Join your peers and colleagues for a FREE conference with an exciting mix of educational keynotes, lightning talks, and panel sessions, to learn how you can live the Digital Principles every day, too.
Leading organizations are putting the Digital Principles into practice already, finding innovations and gaining efficiencies that are inspiring a new way to implement development projects. This event is the second in a three-part series organized by DIAL, focusing on sharing innovations directly from implementers and practical guidance on the Digital Principles. You can read a re-cap of our first event – held in Dar es Salaam, Tazania in October – here. You can also watch three recorded sessions from that event here.
Join us in Jakarta, Indonesia to dive deep into three of the nine Principles – Reuse and Improve, Design for Scale, and Build for Sustainability.
Space at this event is limited to 120 attendees.

We want to make sure this event is representative of the interesting and diverse digital development ecosystem. That means we would like to feature practitioners from multiple sectors and countries in Southeast Asia, so if you’re interested in presenting your own organization’s work on how you live out the Digital Principles, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are seeking speakers for the following topics:
- Panel (Design for Scale)
- Lightning talks (Reuse & Improve)
- Panel (Future of Development in Southeast Asia & the Pacific region using the Digital Principles)
As “living” guidelines, the Principles are designed to help digital development practitioners integrate established best practices into technology-enabled programs while incorporating feedback and new insights over time. They continue to be a community-driven global good, meant to advance the role of digital technology in development and to move the needle on ending global poverty into technology-enabled programs while incorporating feedback and new insights over time.
