As information and communication technologies (ICTs) are dramatically changing the lives of people around the world, governments must come to grips with finding solutions that will increase public value to their citizens. This publication creates a venue for promoting innovative e-government solutions, services and products developed by public institutions across the world. The Compendium also enables South-South and North-South information-sharing of their respective experiences and innovative practices. In both cases, the focus is on hastening innovation and creating public value for the citizenry. It covers a wide range of innovative practices, such as citizens service delivery, e-participation, information access, e-health, information sharing/access, crisis management, e-accounting, e-commerce, e-customs, e-petitioning, e-voting, e-education, e-justice, e-procurement, e-taxation, e-inclusion, e-environment, gender equality, government portal, government intranet, sustainable development, open government data, etc.

The Niger Delta Watch project enables individuals and organizations in the Niger Delta region to report incidents using SMS messages, which are then verified and displayed on an interactive map on the Niger Delta Watch Website. An accompanied Android application, which sends users a GPS location in the same SMS that contains the report, has also been developed. The Web application reorganizes and stores these coordinates, thus providing accurate location information along with the reports. The interactive map on the website is enriched with the additional overlays that contain data from external source.
