Capacity Development and ICT: Rallying the Strength of Media Tools to Sustain Development Goals and Inclusive Access to Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for the Poor

An idea that sprung from the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), and to date has proven quite successful is the use of media instruments to engage and strengthen capacity for local organizations to tackle development issues.

As part of this platform, the COL has emphasized a clear link toward policy and program implementation, and ICT as a support mechanism to attack poverty and sustain the deployment and promotion of micro-schemes for entrepreneurships and employment.

It is good to know that this program from its inception was first introduced in the Caribbean, through the development of partnerships between ministries and the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization).
