Information about the project
Communication Technology and Networking for Development
The World Science Project was created before WSIS Geneva for the express purposes of organizing the science side event for WSIS II Tunisia. Its main thrusts were to (1) provide connectivity to research organizations in Africa and south Asia; (2) to conduct connectivity surveys of scientists, educators, researchers, and professionals in low-income areas. These studies represent the only global surveys to span the entire Internet era, with information collected as far back as 1994 to the present. So far, the great benefits of connectivity have not yet resulted in the expected outcomes for social networks, particularly for women.
