Will local government be able to match central government’s ‘carbon neutral ICT within four years’ goal? This key question, asked in LGITU editorial back in July 2008, instigated the research programme ‘Green Veneer or Green Revolution’.

Beyond ICT4D: New Media Research in Uganda is a collection of ethnographic reports from diverse perspectives of those living at the other end of the African ICT pyramid.
