A4AI and UNESCAP partner to advance affordable Internet access in Asia and the Pacific

The UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI) announced a new partnership to promote affordable Internet access and meaningful connectivity in the Asia and Pacific region through policy and regulatory reform. The partnership will work mainly towards developing training curriculums, delivering capacity building, and sharing workshops for policymakers from the region, as well as conducting a joint study on assessing effective policy options for meaningful broadband connectivity in Asia and the Pacific. Through this collaboration, the two entities will further support the harmonisation of the regional policy processes to ensure that both parties are working together to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDG).
