Abstract: The International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) has five years of experience building the capacity of multi-stakeholder networks in the field of ICT for development (ICT4D) in nine countries. The networks engage in knowledge sharing, advocacy and awareness raising activities to a different extent in each country. IICD and the nine national ICT4D networks it helped to set up, have developed building blocks that can be combined and implemented according to local requirements. These include: face-to-face meetings; content development; ICT4D website; ICT4D newsletter; e-discussions; awareness raising and lobbying; research; cross-country workshops; peer assistance; and skills development programmes. The networks are in Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Ecuador, Ghana, Jamaica, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia.
