Welcome to SPIDER

SPIDER, the Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions, has the mission to decrease the global differences in the use of ICT. SPIDER promotes the use of ICT as a means to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the UN in November 2015.

Our work includes support to projects, research and capacity building in developing regions. Spider also acts in networks and brings together actors from different parts of the ICT-arena: Civil Society Organisations, Universities, Private Companies as well as Governmental Agencies in Sweden and in our partner countries.

Spider runs projects, supports research and builds networks and capacity within our thematic areas Health, Education and Transparency & Accountability in Sub-Saharan Africa, South-East Asia and South America.
