The Digital Solidarity Fund

Author(s): Alain Clerc1
Affiliation(s): 1Secretary-General, Digital Solidarity Fund, Switzerland
Summary (max 100 words):

Although this question seems simple in itself, it raises the issue of political will, which is more important than the issue of material means, as money and sophisticated technology alone cannot respond to the challenge. Indeed, the real question here is what can be done to reach the set objective. At the onset of the 21st century, asking the question of how to do it could almost be interpreted as a way of eluding the underlying political dimension of the topic. Obviously, this is not a sufficient reason to stop seeking real answers. Within this context, the approach proposed by the Global Digital Solidarity Fund is particularly interesting and deserves to be supported.
