IATI Identifier: GB-1-204321

INASSA is a research programme, which is managed and co-funded by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC). DFID is contributing £6,300,000 over the four year course of the programme in order to establish eight research networks spread across Low Income, and DFID Priority, Countries. These networks will generate evidence on the positive and negative impacts of increasing levels of access to internet and mobile technologies in Low Income Countries (LICs). This will help to inform emerging policy that looks to empower the world’s poorest people through technology.
