Hi all,

Apologies for cross posting. Please circulate widely.


New Book: Akoh,B., Egede-Nissen, B., & Creech, H. (2012). Toolkit on Internet Public Policy Dialogue: Tools for the Practitioner. IISD. Available at: http://www.iisd.org/publications/pub.aspx?pno=1619. Download for free.

This Toolkit can be used by new or emerging public policy groups seeking to understand and support public policy dialogue with stakeholders. It is based on two central activities: the gathering of evidence to support policy recommendations, and the securing of consent among the stakeholders to be affected by policy change.


New Report: Akoh, B. (2012). Supporting Multistakeholder Internet Public Policy Dialogue in a Least Developed Country: The Togo Experience. IISD:Canada. Available at: http://www.iisd.org/publications/pub.aspx?pno=1683.

This case study for Togo, a least developed country, illustrates how multistakeholder dialogue can identify priorities and challenges for the development and deployment of the Internet in support of the country's economic, social and environmental needs. Information and communication technology (ICT) growth in Africa has been steady in the past five years, with impacts on the economic and social landscape. Grassroots involvement and local level policy consultations should be considered an intrinsic part of the process of developing national priorities and objectives for ICTs and the Internet.
