GISWatch has won the ITU-awarded WSIS project prize 2012

We love prizes!

The Association for Progressive Communications, of which EngageMedia is a member, in close cooperation with networks and civil society groups, is 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 ofICT policies throughout the years, from ICT for development to internet governance from the perspectives of civil society.

We view this prize as a strong affirmation from the ICT community that GISW 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.

EngageMedia contributed the Australian country report to the project in 2010, the Australian and Indonesian reports in 2011, and, in 2012, will contribute the Indonesian report. You can download the reports here.
