FOSS policy in Africa toolkit
The promotion of "Free/open source software- (FOSS) for development is one of themes at WSIS. The http://www.bridges.org bridges.org report, "FOSS policy in Africa: A toolkit for policy-makers and practitioners" is targeted at governments that are investigating whether and how they can integrate FOSS into their strategies for social and economic development. One of the key components of the toolkit is a table that presents information on FOSS Policy in Africa, with a list of FOSS-policy activities for the continent that can be modified and extended by others interested in keeping it current as a "living" resource.
