Community-Based Networks and Innovative Technologies: New Models to
Serve and Empower the Poor
This report and its accompanying case studies consider how the
combination of community-driven enterprises and the new wave of wireless
and related technologies may have the potential to extend networks and
offer new services to poor communities and to empower them to develop
solutions that are more focused on their own development needs. The
report concludes that new community-driven options could make a
significant difference to network access, delivery of services and
economic and social opportunities for poorer rural communities.
