Inclusive Digital Economy Scorecard (IDES) - Tonga 2022

The inclusive digital economy scorecard (IDES) is a policy tool to help governments set the priorities for their countries’ digital transformation. It identifies the key market constraints hindering the development of an inclusive digital economy and helps to set the right priorities with public and private stakeholders, to foster a digital economy that leaves no one behind.

This aspiration further aims to mainstream technology as an agent of change that should unlock opportunities to support smaller island communities of Tonga, thereby resulting in efficiencies and cost effective ways to motivate participatory and inclusive development across key sectors. Such opportunities include e-learning, e-health services, scale up of energy solutions to reach all Tongans, and improved linkages between the population living in dispersed islands across the nation.
