Please email Shailee Adinolfi the name of project, country, implementer, funder, and a few bullet points explaining how the project used one or more of these principles, and what the results were.
DEADLINE: Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
Good examples of ICT4D projects using progressive design principals will be highlighted in future USAID communications to advance the community’s knowledge and skills in successfully deploying technology solutions for development.
