Building Digital Opportunities

Description: 
An effort to identify and help remove some of the key barriers to, and to develop genuine opportunities for, poverty-focused information and communication technology (ICT) for development. BDO’s five strategic objectives (‘action lines’) are: Action line 1: The capacities of regional, national and local policy makers to formulate and establish effective ICT policies and regulatory frameworks are strengthened. Action line 2: Local organisations are enabled to effectively apply ICTs for the benefit of poor people. Action line 3: The capacities of local, community, media, and public interest organisations to express themselves, nationally and internationally, through the use of new and traditional ICTs, are strengthened. Action line 4: The awareness by development stakeholders regarding the development potentials of ICTs is increased. Action line 5: The relationships and alliances among BDO and other partners are made more effective.
