Information Kiosks in every Indian village by 2007 - a myth or reality?

OneWorld South Asia and MS Swaminathan Research Foundation are hosting an online discussion over the next six weeks. The major themes for this email and web-based discussion are: Scalability, Sustainability and Collaboration. The Sectoral focus within each of these themes would be on Education, Health and Livelihoods.

A summary of the discussions would be shared at two separate national workshops on technology and policy issues on the ICT4D initiatives. These workshops are tentatively scheduled to be held in Delhi, towards the end of June and early July 2004. This is an open debate, so any one can join. The organisers would specially like to invite groups, individuals and organizations, policy planners and practitioners interested in technology, ICT and development issues to join in these discussions.
