Communications and Information Policy Programme

The goal of APC's Communications and Information Policy Programme (CIPP) is to build more inclusive ICT decision-making processes by facilitating civil society engagement through the improvement of its participants’ capacity and supporting advocacy, at national and international levels. APC believes that civil society inclusion in policy-making will lead to their involvement in implementing and monitoring policies, and ultimately to societies in which there is greater citizen participation.
