Abstract

TASCHA, along with the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and the International Federation of Library Associations & Institutions (IFLA) have prepared a briefing paper, “Public access: Supporting digital inclusion for all – Maximising the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for inclusive social and economic development.” The paper was produced for the WSIS+10 High-Level Event, which IFLA and APC attended June 9-13 2014 in Geneva. The briefing paper draws UN Member States' attention to the importance of access to ICTs as a key issue in development and to the ongoing digital divide. It includes a checklist of action points for policymakers that highlights an ecosystem approach to ensure better public access.
