An extract from "Infrastructure development": (E-Bridges->PNC At Work)
Infrastructure backlog is one of the major obstacles the country has to overcome before it achieves real development. Two elements underpin the discussion around developing ICT infrastructure. These are affordability and accessibility.
The roll-out targets of supplying infrastructure to under-serviced areas will only be met if users can afford both the technological equipment and the services related to their operation.
Both the physical location and the design of a particular technology will determine its utilisation. This means that technology must not only be within reach of the people for whom it is intended, but that it must be accessible regardless of age or physical disability.
The PNC has dedicated a team of professionals to the Technical Standing Committee to ensure optimal capacity-building in this area.

In practical terms, there's nothing to be gleaned from the PNC/ISSAD at this stage. It's an endeavour designed to address positioning issues within the global context, with multi-lateral spin-offs in the government-to-government sphere. Not of any relevance to this forum's raison d'etre.
