May 2002: New OneWorld Digital Opportunity Channel

Door: OneWorld

Hosted at, this global portal will focus on use of ICTs (information and communications technologies) for sustainable development, with a special emphasis on developing countries. It will be launched publicly the week of 17 May 2002 to coincide with UN World Telecommunications Day, which this year is celebrated under the theme, "ICT for all: empowering people to cross the digital divide".

Digital Opportunity Channel will be coordinated from India, which has one of the largest populations of the poorest and marginalized in the world - and at the same time shows the biggest potential in ICTs for development.
