The work on G&G I have been involved with builds on the results of the program of work I managed at the OECD Development Centre in 2001-2003. A special emphasis on the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP, aka lusofonia), follows from the protocol of collaboration between IICT and CPLP, signed on 10 March, 2004.
