DTN: Digital and Technology Network 24.04.2019

The Digital & Technology Network (DTN) brings together the CIOs from UN System organizations to advise the HLCM on system-wide approaches to leveraging technology and functions as a forum to coordinate system-wide ICT policy and practices.

In 1994, recognizing the increasing importance of information and communication technology to achieving the mandates of their organizations, the ACC established the Information Systems Coordination Committee (ISCC), the precursor to the ICT Network (ICTN). In April 2002, the ICTN held its first session and has since conducted biannual meetings. Shifting focus to the strategic and digital transformation of the UN system as a whole, the ICTN changed its name to the Digital & Technology Network (DTN) in its autumn session of 2018. The DTN brings together the CIOs from CEB member organizations. It is the inter-agency mechanism for the promotion of cooperation and collaboration on digital and technology related matters.
