This workshop will examine how locally relevant content can be best supported through a wide array of various creative programmes, initiatives, and incentives.
Additionally, the workshop will look at how locally relevant content can facilitate Internet adoption and digital inclusion by creating meaningful online spaces for communities. Local content often thrives in enabling environments that have the appropriate policy measures and services. This workshop will explore the following questions:

  • What type of policy environment is needed to support locally relevant content?
  • What are examples of successful programmes and initiatives that have supported a local content ecosystem?
  • What are the barriers to supporting local content?
  • How can supporting local content help drive Internet connectivity and adoption?
  • How can developing countries successfully establish flourishing local content ecosystems? Additionally, how can developing countries ensure that those local content ecosystems are sustainable?
