Centre for Digital Transformation

The Centre for Digital Transformation (CDT) was established at Tabadlab in 2019 as part of the organisation’s vision to power Pakistan’s growth through a robust, progressive, inclusive, and equitable digital evolution. Such a transformation needs to be underpinned by an enabling and operating environment that looks beyond the immediate horizon, and past singular perspectives and linear approaches. CDT aims to become a pivotal actor in Pakistan’s digital journey by using Tabadlab’s approach to understanding change.

We take a systems approach to strengthen and create pillars that not only support digital verticals but also enable cross-linkages to embed digital in daily lives. CDT’s work encompasses spillovers and repercussions from the digital economy that impact society. We strive to better understand, equip, and enable communities, households, and individuals to embrace the digital future.
