USAID-UNDP Asia Regional Civil Society Experience Summit


Published on

The USAID-UNDP Asia Regional Civil Society Experience Summit was to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, between May 27 and 29, 2014 but cancelled at the last minute by the organisers on account of the recent political unrest in the country.

In addition to attending, I was invited to do a 'Flash presentation' of five minutes around, "...providing inspiring examples of how ICTs can be used for reaching development goals, while highlighting the realities CSOs must face in light of increasing use of ICTs in their work and society, including digital safety/security and working towards a positive ICT enabling environment."
