Welcome to Spider

The Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (Spider) is a resource center in Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D). We bring together actors from different parts of society to promote and improve the use of ICT for development.  

Thematic focus

Thematically, we have three focus areas: Transparency and Accountability, Education and Learning; and Health and Wellbeing. In these we support developing country projects, create networks in a certain theme or geographical area to further ICT in the development context.
