Description

"In January 2018, IDRC awarded Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas A.C. (CIDE) funding to create the cyber policy center Centro Latam Digital (CLD). The Center’s objective is to generate rigorous, evidence-based research to provide policymakers in Latin America with the capacity to design and implement inclusive policies that best respond to a new generation of technologies within the regional context. After two years since its creation, CLD plays a critical role in shaping evidence-based digital policy in support of human rights, democracy, social inclusion and economic development at the local, national and regional levels. The specific objectives of this grant were to: - support the cyber policy center in the generation of knowledge in key areas of cyber policy such as innovation, cybersecurity and digital rights to consolidate its role as an innovative thought leader at the national and regional levels; - support the development of capacities of the cyber policy center in cyber policy issue areas in which there is limited knowledge; and - strengthen the advocacy role of the cyber policy center in national, regional and global debates on cyber policy."
