GISWatch wins WSIS project prize from ITU

Hivos and The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) were pleased to accept the WSIS Project Prize from the International Telecommunications Union for the achievements of the GISWatch project under the category "The role of public governance authorities and all stakeholders in the promotion of ICT for development". GISWatch has made many important contributions to the understanding of ICT policies throughout the years, from ICT for development to internet governance from the perspectives of civil society. Hivos and APC view this prize as a strong affirmation from the ICT community that GISWatch is an innovative, replicable and worthwhile international project that involves stakeholders around the implementation of WSIS outcomes by offering an efficient scenario where those actors can share their best practices.
