Global Wire Books is happy to release our latest annual report “The State of International Communications 2013.” This is an assessment of how our clients view trends in information and communications technology (ICT) and social innovation. 2013 is the first year we have seen more survey participants accessing the Internet through mobile phones and tablets than on laptop and desktop computers. Mobility has helped to greatly shrink the digital gap worldwide. The report also shows the decline in print media and postal mail for accessing information, and the growing interest in alternative energy for supporting ICT tools. Our survey also shows that there are still technological disparities among women in developing countries. Most importantly, the majority of our participants in all regions agree that governments need to do more to make sure that all ICT tools are accessible to all populations equally.
Note: All GWA partnering organizations will receive a complimentary hard copy of the report during our UN Week activities in New York City and an electronic version by email today. Everyone else can buy the electronic version here.
