As well, CIDA supported the development of community radio exchange tools using APC’s ActionApps and Beijing+5 Section J activities to advocate for support of women’s use of ICTs.

In 2001 CIDA funded the Media Convergence and Toolkit project, and in 2003 and 2004 provided support for “Knowledge and capacity for civil society engagement in ICT policies: Leveraging the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)”.
