Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA)

Visit website

CIPESA was established in 2004 under the Catalysing Access to Information and Communications Technology in Africa (CATIA) initiative, which was mainly funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID). CIPESA works to enable policy makers in the region to understand ICT policy issues, and for various stakeholders to use ICT to improve governance and livelihoods. They currently approach work through four different but interrelated thematic areas, namely promoting online freedom, ICT for democracy and civic participation, open data and the right to information, and contributing to internet governance debate at national, regional and global level.
