 This new Orbicom project pushes the frontiers of research in the area of ICTs-for-development. It extends beyond telecommunications and integrates thematically multiple aspects of ICTs conducive to policy formulation, implementation and monitoring.  The project represents a unique collaboration between prominent researchers and statistical offices, and takes place in six countries:  India and Malaysia from Asia, Brazil and Argentina from Latin America, and Cameroon and Egypt from Africa.

 

As part of the capacity-building contribution of the project, and in the spirit of the communication-for-development approach, a training workshop took place in Montreal, Canada from May 20-22, 2009 with the participation of the research teams from all six participating countries.
