ICT Policy and Civil Society Workshop, Addis Ababa,
Ethiopia: 6-8 November, 2002
The workshop duration runs from Wednesday the
6th November morning to Sunday the 10th November. The main meeting
of civil society organizations begins on 6th morning until the 8th
in the afternoon, followed by a two day training course on ICT policy
for civil society (from 8th in the afternoon to 10th November morning).
A detailed agenda will be available shortly.
About the Training Course:
This is a two day pilot training course on ICT
policy for civil society to enable them to understand and engage
in the ICT policy decisions that impact on their work. APC is offering
training to a smaller group focused on the concepts and materials
in a plain-language guide that will provide a general overview to
ICT technology industry/economic and policy issues with a focus
on civil society activities and engagement on policy.
This will be a pilot running of the draft course
and we would value comments on the materials for future development.
We will also be seeking partners who could help us develop the course,
and deliver the training course elsewhere in Africa.
There are limited places for this training course
and interested civil society organizational will be required to
apply separately for attendance to this course.
