Connecting Rural Communities Africa Forum, 17 - 19 August 2010

The 5th Annual Connecting Rural Communities Africa Forum 2010 will be held from the 17-19 August, 2010 at the International Conference Center, Accra, Ghana. The theme for the conference is “Connecting rural Africa on a cost-effective, sustainable and profitable basis through government-led Public Private Peoples Partnerships.” By design the conference will be positioned to stimulate participation by public and private sector institutions in identifying critical challenges facing delivery of ICT services to remote rural areas, suggesting possible solutions to improve communications and access to resource information services by rural communities. This conference will serve as a unique platform to arrive at a consensus on moving rural connectivity forward to the next level in this robust, dynamic and fast-paced period of ICT developments.
