Note: Co-creation of programmes in ICT for health, education and economic development has been the starting point for the Connect 4 Change (C4C) alliance and put into practise in 2011. IICD, Cordaid, Edukans and ICCO in collaboration with AKVO, Text2Change and partner organisations united for the design and implementation of ICT4Development programmes. This so-called ICT-led social innovation process started in 2011. The ICT-based Social Innovation Process enables diverse stakeholders to set priorities for strengthening the sectors they have an interest in, shape their sector’s development path, and design how their organisations will use ICT tools to empower their staff and their beneficiaries to create positive change. From its inception, IICD has thus always regarded ICT as tools whose power can be harnessed by people in developing countries to shape their own development rather than technology being a goal.
