Catalysing Access to ICT in Africa (CATIA)

The Catalysing Access to ICT in Africa (CATIA) programme aimed to enable poor people in Africa to gain maximum benefit from the opportunities offered by Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and to act as a strong catalyst for reform. It supported a package of strategic activities to improve affordable access to the full range of ICTs, from Internet to community radio. This programme focussed on the need for ICTs to address social and economic development issues. It worked to help build capacity across Africa to achieve sustainable change.

CATIA was a three-year programme of the Department for International Development (DFID) in close collaboration with other donors and role players (e.g. Sida, IDRC, CIDA and USAID). It was implemented in close coordination with the Canadian government’s Connectivity Africa initiative. CATIA was managed by Atos Consulting from a programme office in Johannesburg, South Africa. The programme ended in August 2006 although OKN and the Pro-Poor Broadcasting component are continuing until April 2007.

The CATIA programme consisted of nine distinct component projects. These are:
