Community Networks: Towards Sustainable Funding Models

Official Outcome of the UN IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity

As the world enters a phase of recovery from the hardest part of the pandemic, one thing seems clear to everyone: connectivity has become vital to every side of our lives. However, almost 40 percent of the world population still does not have access to what is increasingly touted as a fundamental right. To solve this pressing problem, it is essential to explore alternative solutions, aiming at a more sustainable internet ecosystem. This volume, dedicated to “Community Networks: Towards Sustainable Funding Models”, aims at providing a missing, yet essential perspective to the community network debate: how to fund these initiatives sustainably.
