|Samenvatting||For ICTs to become an effective empowerment tool, they need to be conveyors of locally relevant messages and information and provide opportunities for local people to interact and communicate with each other, expressing their own ideas, knowledge and culture in their own languages. In a search for ways to promote local content, we have few guidelines to follow. Should we create more effective ‘push’ mechanisms, increasing and improving the supply of content? Should we focus on the demand side, so that local content is more highly valued? Should we look at the containers in which content is packaged, making them more attractive and accessible? Should different content types get different treatment? Drawing from a consultation process to examine how local content in developing countries is created, adapted, and exchanged, this report provides some answers to these questions. It is a synthesis of lessons; the case stories reproduced in a companion report provide details on actual experiences and lessons from the ground.|
