This White Paper from the World Economic Forum is the end result of a year-long effort that began with a raised hand and simple question. At an Internet for All workshop during the World Economic Forum on Africa in Kigali, Rwanda from 11-13 May 2016, participants were listening to a presentation on the project’s “barriers framework”.

Developed as part of the first Internet for All publication, this framework is based on four barriers that must be overcome to achieve internet access for all: limited infrastructure, lack of affordability, poor digital skills and awareness, and an absence of relevant online content.
