Information Society and Sustainable Development: Next generation policy intersections,
The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)

(21 September 2005, Geneva, Switzerland)
1929943_14312774749_4001_nCan national ICT policies reduce the gap that exists between communities and national policies on the Information Society and sustainable development? This question was explored by a panel comprising Maja Andjelkovic of the IISD, Steve Vosloo of Empowerment for African Sustainable Development (EASD), and Wainaina Mungai of OneWorld International, Kenya.

Messrs Vosloo and Mungai presented their experiences as participants in a project on Next Generation Policy Intersections, conducted by IISD. The goal of the project was to engage young researchers from seven countries in the search for connections between these policy areas. The results of their research have been collected in an IISD book, A Developing Connection, to be released in November.

The panelists presented case studies of South Africa and Kenya, two countries where large numbers live below the poverty line, and where higher penetration of ICTs could boost sustainable development projects. Mr Vosloo examined the importance of developing local content, which he said “is fundamental to building sustainable development”. Presenting the case study of Kenya, Mr Mungai pointed out gaps in that country’s current ICT and sustainable development policies, including a lack of strong ICT policies and divergences between policy and implementation. Among his proposed solutions, he advocated a more aggressive use of existing ICT infrastructure, particularly mobile communications and satellites.
