Communities in the domain of Communication and Information

The development of networks ensures equitable access to services and contents especially in the public domain as well as facilitating the free flow of information.
In promoting the development of electronic networks, UNESCO lays emphasis on policies and strategies to develop the most appropriate methodology to meet the specific needs of the different communities.

Through its global and regional networks, the Organization seeks to effectuate social development, democratisation and good governance. By providing access to relevant information in an interactive format and in an easily assimilated form, UNESCO fosters capacities to acquire new knowledge and skills.

Regional information networks (APIN, INFOLAC, MEDLIB, RINAF), virtual laboratories and learning communities and other information networks (UNAL, ORBICOM) offer a new paradigm for global cooperation using traditional and multimedia technologies to promote applications in the Organization's fields of competence.
