Advancing Jamaica’s Digital Response to COVID-19

The project will directly invest in infrastructural strengthening for the expansion of broadband coverage in Jamaica, consistent with Government’s policy priorities for accelerating a Digital Society, ensuring accessible, affordable, and resilient coverage for all Jamaicans. UNDP, in partnership with the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology (MSET) through the Universal Service Fund's Community Wi-Fi initiative (USF) will specifically expand broadband access in a number of underserved communities across the island.  

Additionally, UNDP will deploy its Digital Readiness Assessment Tool (DRA) as a no cost activity, supported by UNDP’s Chief Digital Office. This assessment when deployed, will provide critical inputs into improving and/or strengthening Jamaica’s digital transformation strategy.
