APC at the Web2forDev conference and training Web2.0 practitioners in Kampala

ROME 19 December 2007 (Karel Novotný for APCNews)

For the first time, in September 2007, a large group of people involved in one way or another with development work met to discuss the possibilities and drawbacks of sophisticated web-based applications in situations of low bandwidth and limited access to powerful hardware. Many of them had the chance to experiment with the tools in a workshop APC co-organised at a conference called Web2forDev. The interest of this community, gradually expanding under the ‘Web2forDev’ label, focuses on how cutting-edge technology can help to close the gap in access to ICTs, as opposed to widening it further.

Mainstreaming ICTs: Africa lives the information society.

By Women'sNet and OSISA (January 2005, Women'sNet and OSISA )

This handbook for development practitioners offers 10 case studies from southern Africa in an attempt to bridge policy and practice in the use of ICTs to confront issues of gender inequalities, schools with limited resources, and harsh environmental realities. It also features five toolkits to help civil society organisations deepen their capacity to apply ICTs and forge their path in the information society. One of the toolkits featured is APC WNSP’s Gender Evaluation Methodology for Internet and ICTs (GEM).
