UN Asia Pacific Centre for ICT (UN APCICT) The United Nations Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (UN-APCICT) was inaugurated on 16 June 2006 as a subsidiary body of ESCAP. It is located in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The objective of UN-APCICT is to build the capacity of members and associate members of ESCAP in the use of information and communication technology (ICT) for socio-economic development. In pursuance of this objective, UN-APCICT’s work is focused on three inter-related pillars; training, research and advisory. The Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders Programme (Academy) is UN-APCICT’s flagship initiative. It is made up of 8 modules. The objective of the Academy is to equip policy makers, trainers and project managers with the essential knowledge and skills to fully leverage opportunities presented by ICTs to achieve national development goals and bridge the digital divide. In recognizing the severe lack of ICT capacity and the slow progress of ICT development in the Pacific SOPAC accepted to lead the rolling out of the APCICT Academy in the Pacific and has signed a Letter of Exchange (LoE) with APCICT.
