Digital Inclusion

To effectively use ICTs, individuals and communities need access to technology, digital skills training, and relevant technical content and services. Governments at all levels — local, national, and regional — develop digital inclusion policies to ensure that all people benefit from new technologies. Common barriers include affordability, relevancy, and privacy concerns, among others. Digital inclusion, in policy and practice, is a posture that acknowledges the importance of ICTs and addresses the needs of “excluded” individuals and groups to benefit from ICTs. TASCHA’s digital inclusion research informs public policy and develops resources for use by public and private sector actors.
