Global Information and Communication Technologies (GICT) is a joint department of the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation. The department also houses InfoDev, a multi-donor trust fund for innovation projects and research. By combining the World Bank expertise in policy and regulatory matters, IFC’s experience in private sector investment transactions and InfoDev analytical activities, GICT provides governments, private companies, and civil society organizations with the expertise and capital needed to develop and apply ICTs to reduce poverty. GICT also helps to coordinate the World Bank Group's relations and partnerships with other donors, international organizations and non-government organizations in the area of ICT for development.
