Nearly 3 billion people are still unconnected, deprived of the possibilities the Internet offers. Communities living in rural, remote, and low-income areas are the most affected. They are building their own solutions to change that, including municipal and community networks, cooperatives, and other complementary access solutions. But they have two main challenges: the lack of skills and funding to build and maintain sustainable Internet infrastructure. This workshop will explore how a focus on capacity building can help achieve the SDG 9 and the SDGs in general, sharing past experiences and key learnings.
