Gender and ICT: a good mix

Alice Van der Elstraeten's picture

The International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) assists people in developing countries in benefiting from information and communication technology to improve their livelihoods and quality of life. In  ocusing their work on the less privileged, special consideration is given to reaching people in rural areas with low incomes. Women constitute a substantial part of the members of this target group. Attention for gender issues is therefore paramount for the programmes to be effective and sustainable.
