The fund supports ICT-related activities that promote poverty reduction, encourage private sector participation in ICT development, and improve regional and international cooperation through ICT applications. The fund aligns with ADB’s strategic approach to ICT, which recognizes ADB’s limited financial and human resources and consists of three strategic thrusts: creating an enabling environment, building human resources, and developing ICT applications and information content.
