Association for Progressive Communication : Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Development

The Association for Progressive Communication (APC) is a network that seeks to empower organizations, social movements and individuals through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). APC advocates for policies that support a more inclusive information and knowledge society. An earlier IDRC grant (102899) allowed APC to invest in the internal processes necessary to manage projects and programs effectively.

This grant will allow APC to consolidate the work completed so far and to address its institutional priorities in the areas of research capacity development; monitoring, evaluation and learning; and planning for long-term sustainability.
