ICT Model Village in Madagascar


The Fifth Infopoverty World Conference, held on 12-13 May 2005, in its final declaration decided "to enhance support for global partnerships and in this context take special efforts to promote the United Nations Public-Private Alliance for Rural Development."

Activities are underway to establish an ICT Model Village in Madagascar in order to:

  • Promote the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals through the use of ICT
  • Provide broadband connectivity and innovative services to a community and equip 3 main sites (community centre, primary school and health presidium) where to implement the project
  • Set a model for the UN Alliance, replicable in disadvantaged communities scattered throughout the world
  • Promote sustainable development and job creation

An ICT Model Village already exists in Tunisia; a result of the Fourth Infopoverty World Conference.
