CEB and its High-Level Committees have continued to address ICT from two interrelated vantage points: first, the coherence of the policy advice that the system provides to countries in setting comprehensive, forward-looking strategies to harness information and communication technology for economic and social progress, and second, the imperative for the system to capitalize on the unprecedented opportunity that ICT offers the organizations of the United Nations system for the creation, sharing and management of knowledge.

CEB: Inter-agency collaboration in information and communication technology 23.02.2017

CEB: Fostering inter-agency collaboration in knowledge management and knowledge sharing 23.02.2017

With these considerations in mind, CEB, through its High-level Committees, has established an inter-agency task force to shape a system-wide knowledge-sharing strategy.
