New APC series on equitable access

New APC series on equitable access

Equitable access is about addressing social and economic imbalances when developing policy and rolling out ICTs, so that people from diverse backgrounds have more or less similar opportunities when it comes to accessing and using technology. Many information and communication technologies (ICT) enthusiasts are developing innovative new solutions to bring access one step closer to communities but these pioneering efforts are currently scattered and largely unavailable in public domain.

APC launches a series on equitable access to ICT infrastructure. This included an event on equitable access which took place in Rio de Janeiro in November 2007 as well as a series of papers and commentaries on the themes of business models, policy and regulation, tools and technologies and people, networks and capabilities.

All summaries, issue papers and commentaries will be available in Spanish and French at the end of August.
