By APC Buenos Aires, 03 March 2011
Various social organisations that have been working together since 2005 to shape the information society in Latin America and the Caribbean have once again chosen APC to act as the civil society liaison within the eLAC2015 Plan of Action. Latin American and Caribbean governments in the Third Ministerial Conference on the Information Society approved the plan in November 2010.
The eLAC2015 Plan of Action will be coordinated by various parties, including government representatives as well as a representative from each of the following regional groups of actors, who are invited as observers: civil society organisations, internet and technical community, and private sector associations.
APC acted as a liaison in the previous period, during the establishment of the eLAC2010 Plan of Action, from 2008 to 2010. By renewing its confidence in APC’s work, the eLAC2010 committee has given its vote of confidence to the APC, and acknowledged that it can continue to coordinate civil society participation to achieve a sustainable information and knowledge society in the region.
APC will be represented in this liaison role by Dafne Sabanes Plou, of the Women’s Networking Support Programme.
