About ICT4D

Information and communications technology for development, commonly known as ICT4D, is the practice of using technology to achieve development and humanitarian outcomes. CRS established its ICT4D team in over a decade ago and it has since grown into a leader in the effective and responsible use of technology and data to advance programmatic quality, impact, and reach. Today, the use of technology is embedded into the majority of all projects implemented by CRS and its partners, enabling adaptive management of projects, communication with program participants, and assistance to reach those in need. We also continue to innovate, working closely with programmatic teams to identify new ways in which technology can add value to the agency’s work. 

Key areas of focus for CRS’s ICT4D practice include:

  • Health
  • Resilience
  • Agriculture
  • Emergency response
  • Cash and asset transfers
  • Monitoring & Evaluation
  • Accountability

CRS also organises the ICT4D Conference, the largest annual event bringing together ICT4D practitioners for knowledge exchange and networking.
