Digital solutions should be a mainstream part of the EU’s international development policy according to the conclusions of a recent European Council meeting. Noting the importance of digital technologies in, “promoting democracy, good governance, inclusion and participation in the decision-making process”, the conclusions go on to state that, “Enhancing digital literacy and skills is essential to ensure that development interventions, enhanced by the use of digital technologies, generate positive outcomes for the target groups and leave no one behind”. They continue, calling for pilot initiatives in a number of areas, including on digital literacy and skills.
