Today! #ICT4D Twitter Chat – Working with Local Governments

By Wayan Vota on January 22, 2010

Don’t forget – today we’re having the January ICT4D Twitter Chat – Working with Local Governments

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 projects usually cannot succeed without their buy-in.

In the January Twitter Chat, we’ll explore four 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?
  2. What are the keys to project success with local government?
  3. How can you work with compromised governments, like Haiti?
  4. 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 follow ICT_works, Michael Downey, and Chloe Feinberg to keep up with all the Twitter Chat action, and for those not on Twitter, you can watch the action via the handy embed below or this separate webpage:



Our hope is to learn from each other to change the failure factors that we can individually control, and recognize the ones we need collective action to remedy.
