Environment & ICTs
The LAC region faces many water-related issues – from drought and flooding to hurricanes and landslides. A new book commissioned by APC and the IRDC examines how ICTs can help alleviate climate and weather-related stress in these areas. APC talks to LAC regional author, Gilles Cliche, about his findings.
This new report by APC and IDRC is a collection of reports that looks at how ICTs can be used to help communities in developing countries facing water stress adapt to climate change. It draws on current experiences in the field of water management and sustainability, and brings a perspective from the ICT for development (ICT4D) sector.
This collection of reports looks at how ICTs can be used to help communities in developing countries facing water stress adapt to climate change by from an ICT4D perspective.
As a progressive network, the environment has been at the heart of the work of many APC members, and began its work on the GreeningIT project in 2008. APC talks to Alan Finlay, project coordinator for GreeningIT, about APC’s work in the area of ICTs and the environment.
In this new publication by APC and IDRC, researchers look at how ICTs are, and can be, applied to help communities experiencing water-related stress, adapt to climate change. It gathers reports from Africa, Asia and Latin America; and provides conceptual tools for practitioners.
Application of ICTs for climate change adaptation in the water sector: Developing country experiences and emerging research priorities
This new publication by the Association for Progressive Communications and the International Development Research Centre gathers several reports from developing countries on how ICTs are and can be applied to help communities experiencing water-reated stress, adapt to climate change.
Climate change is increasingly affecting the availabily and quality of water world wide, and the poorest are, as usual, the hardest hit. In April APC and the IDRC will release a series of research reports that explore how ICTs can help individuals and communities adapt to water issues related to climate change.
