The GIGA project addresses the underlying inequities in access to the Internet in schools. This new study examines the feasibility of countries in the Asia and the Pacific region participating successfully in the Giga initiative and realizing their potential by exploring implementation through the four pillars of Giga (Map, Finance, Connect, and Empower).

The study emphasizes the importance of a comprehensive approach for mapping school connectivity that engages a wide range of stakeholders, and that encourages leveraging existing government policies to deliver greater connectivity, including effectively utilizing USOs and USFs to connect schools. The study also highlights the importance of digital skills and how education ministries could help generate the conditions for long-term connectivity in disadvantaged communities and rural and remote regions.
