On the 12th June, 2013 Bytesforall Bangladesh together with Monthly CNews Magazine (http://www.cnewsvoice.com), Bangladesh Open Source Network (BDOSN – www.bdosn.org) and Bangladesh Computer Samity (BCS – http://www.bcs.org.bd/) organized a round-table on Women Rights, Gender and ICT: Issues and Remedies to online harassment at the BCS auditorium in Dhaka and collected inputs on online harassment and privacy infringement. It was attended by more than 40 participants including students, women rights activists, ICT entrepreneurs, journalists, university teachers, NGO activists etc.
Bytesforall Initiative has undertaken an extensive research to map all environment and climate change related policies in Bangladesh and to identify where ICT and access to information can play an important role in order to address the environment sustainability issues. The study that shows how ICT can both be part of the problem and the solution is now available through the APC website at: http://www.apc.org/en/pubs/environment/icts-and-environmental-sustainability-bangladesh-b
The research indicates that ICT and environment sustainability issues are still not at the policy radar of the Government decision makers who undertook sporadic efforts to address the issue.
