The United Nations E-Government Readiness Knowledge Base (UNKB)
is a benchmarking tool that provides a comparative assessment for
monitoring progress of a country’s e-government readiness from 2003 to 2005.
As such it provides an interactive snapshot picture of a country’s e-government
readiness in the world. The primary source of data for the Knowledge Base
comes from the United Nations Global E-Readiness Reports and Survey.
This section of the Knowledge Base contains an introduction to the UN
mission as it relates to e-government and also provides the UNKB E-Government
Framework, which establishes the foundation for the UN Department of Economic
and Social Affairs (UNDESA) efforts.
