ICTs and environmental sustainability: Mapping national policy contexts in India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Costa Rica and Mexico

The five research projects discussed here are part of a APC programme area in the field of ICTs and environmental sustainability. They accompany an inventory of sustainable ICT tools and practices and a survey of organisational-level policies on ICTs and environmental sustainability.

The key objectives to the country-level studies carried out in India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Costa Rica and Mexico were:

  • to map the policy terrain as it relates to the use of and impact of ICTs on environmental sustainability, with a particular emphasis on climate change and e-waste
  • to identify key stakeholders active in the field of ICTs and environmental sustainability
  • to offer advocacy interventions in the field of ICTs and environmental sustainability
