Welcome to Global Center for Decision Support adoption from Nasarawa State Nigeria powered by #InnovationbedAfrica

The ICT4SIDS Partnership is using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) to accelerate the adoption of UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and the Samoa Pathway Declaration.

These hubs are designed to collaborate with each other across communities for rapid regional transformation and thus lead to rapid adoption of Samoa Pathway and SDGs.

The Global Center, shown below, supports collaboration and decision support between all hubs and also provides computer aided tools and a methodology to support SIDS. Here for the purpose of the #DigitalNasarawa #InnovationbedAfrica Project

The Project Up-skilling Center operates virtually from the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. It will go a long way to aid our Incubation2030 functions delivery and implementation very inexpensively for the mass production of innovative participants to save their immediate society in Nigeria.
