>>The GKD97 List provides a formal channel into the Global Knowledge for
>>Development Conference deliberations and discussions. This is an
>>important opportunity to have your voice heard, regarding steps that are
>>needed to bring the the benefits of the information revolution to poor
>>people throughout the world. The development community, including
>>multilateral donors like the World Bank and bilateral donors like USAID
>>and CIDA, will be listening intently to the needs, suggestions, and
>>examples introduced on the List and at the Conference. We hope to hear
>>from you, and would greatly appreciate it if you would distribute this
>>invitation to any other individuals or organizations who might be
>>interested in participating.

>>                          INVITATION TO THE
>>               GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE FOR DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
>>                        INTERNET LIST DISCUSSION
>>
>>PURPOSE OF THIS INTERNET LIST
>>
>>The "Global Knowledge 97: Knowledge for Development in the Information
>>Age" Conference will be held in Toronto, Canada, June 22-25, 1997. The
>>Conference will draw an estimated 1,200 participants: senior government
>>officials, local knowledge builders, the NGO community, business
>>leaders, and other experts from around the globe. It will focus on three
>>core themes:
>>
>>*  Understanding the information revolution and its implications for
>>   developing countries and the world's poor
>>*  Sharing strategies, experiences and tools in harnessing knowledge for
>>   development
>>*  Building new partnerships that empower the poor with information and
>>   knowledge, foster international dialogue on development, and strengthen
>>   the knowledge resources of developing countries.
>>
>>The Conference will explore each of these themes along six tracks:
>>
>>1.  Empowering the Poor with Information and Knowledge
>>2.  Establishing Policy and Regulatory Frameworks that Support an
>>    Information Economy
>>3.  Harnessing Information and Knowledge: Infrastructure,
>>    Capacity-Building and Applications
>>4.  Fostering Science and Technology in Developing Countries
>>5.  Using Information and Knowledge to Support an Informed Public,
>>    Effective Governance, and Civic Dialogue
>>6.  Expanding Life-Long Learning and Distance Education Opportunities
>>
>>The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is sponsoring this
>>Internet List, GKD97, to facilitate broad discussion of the Conference
>>themes at all levels of civil society. The List offers a major forum for
>>the exchange of ideas as well as an important channel for input into the
>>Conference itself. UNDP and the other Conference sponsors encourage
>>those from around the world, especially those in the South, to use the
>>List to express their own needs, experiences, and suggestions related to
>>Conference themes.
>>
>>Our hope is that the List participants will discuss:
>>
>>*  Proposed policies, strategies, tools, and partnerships to improve
>>   access to and use of information resources by the poor in rural and
>>   urban areas alike
>>*  Case studies, best practices, and other examples of activities that
>>   have expanded access to information and knowledge among the poor
>>*  Success stories of efforts, including public-private partnerships, to
>>   build "knowledge for development" capacity in developing countries
>>*  Research findings of relevance to the Conference discussions
>>
