This course is part of the project TRAINFORTRADE blended learning strategy to boost the digital economy in Small Island Developing States. The project will contribute to strengthening the capacities of SIDS in Africa, the Caribbean and Asia and the Pacific to adopt trade policies that foster digital economy development and enhance crisis responsiveness. Specifically, it aims to strengthen the capacities of SIDS on key aspects of the digital economy through the development of skills, knowledge with innovative development approaches based on a recognized blended learning method and state-of-the-art technological solutions.

This course will be delivered in collaboration with the Pacific Digital Economy Programme, a joint initiative of UNCDF, UNDP and UNCTAD, with financial support from the Government of Australia.
