January #ICT4D Twitter Chat: Working with Local Governments

By Wayan Vota on January 15, 2010

Local governments – from regional to village level – can be both a help and a hindrance to information and communication technology deployments in the developing world. Yet they usually cannot be avoided.

In the January Twitter Chat, we’ll explore three vital questions any ICT practitioner faces when designing and deploying technology-based projects at the local level:

  1. Do you work with local governments or bypass them? Why?
  2. What are the keys to project success with local government?
  3. Where are examples of positive local government buy-in?

We’ll start at 12-noon Eastern Time ( noon worldwide ) with introductions, then move into the discussion, using the #ICT4D hashtag in Twitter. Be sure to RSVP here.

For those new to Twitter Chats, its a freewheeling conversation around our central questions on the Twitter platform. Our hope is to learn from each other and find ways we can increase our impact and reduce failure in ICT4D implementations.

We’ll archive the Chat too, in case you miss out.
