WSIS Forum 2023: Capacity Building and Enabling Environments for Meaningful Access in Indigenous and Rural Communities

March 16 @ 09:15 CET

The objective of this session is to dialogue around the impact of the capacity building programmes aimed at enabling people living in rural territories or indigenous communities to deploy, operate and manage their own solutions for meaningful access and local ICTs entrepreneurship. Likewise, at the end of the dialogue space, there will be inputs to understand how different stakeholders can develop enabling environments to make these local solutions and training programs sustainable. This will be achieved through the sharing of experiences in the development of two capacity building initiatives in the global south: The training program for community technicians in indigenous communities in Latin America promoted by ITU and Techio Comunitario, and the first National Schools of Community Networks carried out in Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Indonesia and Brazil, promoted by APC and Rhizomatica.
