Understanding digital access and use in the global south : 2019 final technical report
The research developed a comparative set of ICT and socio-economic indicators for 16 countries across three regions of the Global South (Africa, Asia and Latin America). The project focuses on the impact of ICT policy and market developments in generating, or helping to decrease social inequalities, particularly with regard to gender, youth and urban poor dimensions of inequality. It acknowledges the growing importance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for human development, as well as digital inequality and/or potential harms associated with the intensification of ‘digitisation’ and ‘datafication’. The report provides a summary of project activities, including outcomes and outputs.
