    Case Study Description Red TIC Bolivia is a network of 25 organisations from around Bolivia who all use information and communications technology (known as “ICT”) for sustainable human development in the fields of education, governance, gender and agriculture. A member of the Connect4Change consortium, it aims to improve the lives of Bolivian people, reduce poverty and bridge the digital gap by promoting the embrace of computers, mobile phones and information systems to solve problems. Knowledge exchange is actively encouraged by Red TIC Bolivia. Within the Connect4Change programme it is working to strengthen, integrate and expand the use of ICT to improve the flow of information about technological and commercial innovations to farmers. It uses Akvo RSR on its website in the form of Akvo Pages to share knowledge and content from its partners across its network and with other organisations.
