United Nations Development Programme
The APC/UNDP relationship began in the early 1990s when they collaborated on the Sustainable Development Networking Programme (SDNP), connecting UNDP offices from around the world through a network of email nodes, before the internet became available to the public. In 2003 APC provided UNDP with training in gender and ICT at the World Summit on the Information Society in Geneva.
Currently, the UNDP is one of APC’s strategic partners in ICT4D and “pro-poor” advocacy work. In 2006 UNDP funded a pro-poor research workshop, Making ICT work for the Poor. In 2008, they asked APC to develop a pro-poor ICT access resource kit aimed to reduce poverty and foster inclusive development through affordable access to ICTs. UNDP has also had working relationships with many APC members.
