eGA raised awareness about the opportunities of digital service delivery among the governments of Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga and Fiji in the Pacific region.
The project encouraged the use of digital technologies by governments in the Pacific region, enhanced abilities to define, develop, implement and resource roadmaps on e-governance, and enabled governments to engage donors, investors and other service support providers by fostering public-private partnerships.
The project contributes to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 8, 9, 16, 17
The first steps toward this project were made in May 2017, when representatives from the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa and Tonga participated in the e-Governance Conference in Tallinn, Estonia, which was organised by e-Governance Academy.
In the margins of the conference, the participating officials expressed an interest in commencing broader cooperation on e-governance.
As a result of consultations between e-Governance Academy and Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), a project was prepared and launched on 13 September 2018.
