How Can Technology Fight Corruption in Ghana?

Accra – March 21st – RSVP Now
Ghana is now considered a lower middle income country, and it has been suggested that Ghana can only make further growth and progress if it can clean up corruption in the system by building stronger institutions and undertaking requisite reforms within the framework of good governance.

Key ICT tools are serving as a bedrock for freeing up access to information and promoting transparency, leveling the playing field for both governments and citizens, and fighting against corruption across the globe. The recent leak of financial documents is an example of how various methods are being employed to harness technology and reduce opportunities for corruption.

Please RSVP now to join a lively debate at the next Accra Technology Salon. We’ll discuss the potential of emerging tech tools to push forward Ghana’s anti-corruption agenda of corruption detection, prevention and analysis as we seek answers to questions like:

  • Where could ICTs help in reducing human interference in public service delivery?
  • How can we make data publicly available to improve transparency?
  • When can Big Data and data mining help fight corruption?
  • What is the real potential of mobile phone technology for anti-corruption efforts?

Penplusbytes will host key stakeholders from government agencies, civil society and tech enthusiasts to facilitate an energetic debate led by these key discussants:

Please RSVP now to join them and your esteemed peers at the 13th Technology Salon Accra. We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited. Once we reach our 30-person capacity, there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:

  • technology’s impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.

Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people – and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
