Digital Gaps and Inequalities in Latin America
Experts from the Brazil-based Regional Study Centre for the Development of an Information Society, Centro Regional de Estudos para o Desenvolvimento da Sociedade da Informação, Cetic.br, offer us an overview of how digital gaps operate as a factor in inequalities in Latin America.
In their conversation, centre manager Alexandre Barbosa and researcher Ana Laura Martínez discuss two distinct gaps: a primary-level access gap and a second-order knowledge and skills gap. They also place on the agenda the importance of data measurement and data production in the design and monitoring of public policy.
The discussion takes place against the backdrop of the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
