Digital Government as a Right

Empowering Citizens and Residents, Enriching Lives: Bahrain's Commitment to Digital Government for All.

How is the Kingdom of Bahrain redefining its citizens' and residents' access to government services in the digital age? By adopting a 'digital-first' strategy, the government is revolutionizing service delivery, prioritizing digital channels to ensure every individual can access these eServices. This inclusive approach transcends barriers related to access, affordability, age, bandwidth, content, disability, education, gender, migration status, location, device type, and computer literacy.

The Digital-as-a-Right policy creates the right environment for public sector entities in Bahrain in this digital age. It orchestrates the digital government strategy that sets out the practical steps for the proliferation of digital technologies towards a more open, transparent, innovative, and open government. The policy strengthens the digital governance framework and builds institutional, legal and human resources capabilities to deliver digital services catering to the needs and expectations of the constituents.

This commitment to digital inclusivity is not just about technological advancement; it aligns perfectly with several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By ensuring equitable digital access, Bahrain is working towards Building Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11), Promoting Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions (SDG 16), and advocating for Gender Equality (SDG 5). These principles reflect a holistic vision of progress, where technology becomes not only a tool but a right for fostering equality, justice, and sustainable development.

In Bahrain, digitalization is more than a convenience; it's a strategy to create a more inclusive, just, and equitable society. Through this initiative, Bahrain is not just keeping up with the global digital transformation but is setting a benchmark for how technology can be leveraged to enhance the quality of life for all its citizens and residents.
