Media, Culture and Heritage National Digitization Plan
The Media, Culture and Heritage National Digitization Plan, as outlined in Qatar's National ICT Plan 2015, is a key initiative towards the preservation of Qatar’s culture, traditions and heritage that was articulated in both the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the Qatar National Development Strategy (2011-2016).
The Media, Culture and Heritage National Digitization plan seeks to develop a vibrant digital ecosystem through which future generations can tap into their past and create new expressions of Qatari culture on the global stage. The Ministry of Information and Communications Technology is central to this endeavor as it is mandated with setting the rules that govern this digital frontier through its policies, laws and guidelines.
The Plan outlines a de-centralized and cooperative model that lays the groundwork for successful digitization initiatives in Qatar. Central to that national effort is a National Digitization Model that plays to the strategic competencies of institutions in the media, culture and heritage sectors of Qatar.
