The Global Impact Study is pleased to announce that we have added Ghana as the fifth country to the user, venue, and non-user surveys and the sixth country for inventory data collection. The country research team will be led by Godfred Frempong of the Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (STEPRI). The surveys and inventory activities in Ghana over the next year will expand the geographical representation of the Global Impact Study by including a country in Africa.

As with the other country research teams, the team in Ghana will conduct surveys on the impact  of public access ICT, as well as collect and report inventory data of public access ICT venues throughout the country. The user, venue, and non-user surveys and inventory data collection in Ghana will begin in early 2011.

We look forward to working with the STEPRI team, and hope you’ll join us in welcoming them to the Global Impact Study.
