This advocacy action was carried out by CEPES, AndinaTIC member in Peru, compiling and systematizing documents on Peruvian government ICT projects. This task supplemented the organisation’s ongoing research on connectivity strategies in rural contexts.

CEPES questions the governmental initiatives which tend to focus on access to infrastructure. It highlights the importance of taking the communities’ social and cultural diversity into account, which creates both needs and capabilities.
