You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Koda Traoré du CTA explique les leçons tirées du projet TelecentresAfrica, mis en place par le CTA. Le problème de pérennité des télécentres ruraux est le résultat d'un manque de contenus pertinents et de diversification des services, et de l'insuffisance de « l'appropriation sociale » des services des télécentres par les communautés locales. Il souligne également le besoin d'élaborer des stratégies d'élargissement et des plans de développement commercial.
