Women use blogs strengthening their policy advocacy projects

Lidera is an ongoing project that seeks to increase and strengthen leadership competencies and capabilities to develop varied policy advocacy projects in Bolivia, Perú and Chile. The main objective is to develop policy advocacy skills and leadership competencies in young women, civil society leaders, in order to create, implement, and influence their own political, social and cultural processes of their countries.  In this way, it is hoped that they will be able to strengthen democracy and create cooperative links between their three countries.

One of the interesting characteristics is the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as strategic tools to strengthen their projects.  These projects are focused in several topics such as women rights, indigenous rights, and environmental issues.  Women use blogs, podcasts, and access to information and training online .
