With contributions from team members Ruhiya, Minerva and Maartje, here is the draft issues note that we finished just in time for distribution at the upcoming post-2015 Global Governance consultation meeting that will take place in Johannesburg next week. Since we did not have time to get the paper peer-reviewed, the issue paper will initially go out as a draft. We can then complete the peer review process and finalize.
We were also asked to put the draft into the standard BDP template. The final draft version is here: ISSUE BRIEF: ICTs for Democractic Governance and Sustainable Development DRAFT.
