Thanks @sunbiz & @brandon for this important question and response.
I agree that it is a critical topic. If we are to be serious about the UN’s call to “Leave No One Behind”, we must work to build not only capacity in low and middle income countries, but also to help make sure people in those places are also co- “owners” of these open source Digital Public Goods.
In our DIAL Open Source Center long-term strategy, we are working toward building up opportunities for training, education, and ecosystems to ensure that people in local communities have the skills, tools, and (most importantly?) funding they need to turn these public goods into local solutions.
While we have some initial ideas about how to start building those relationships and opportunities, I’m going to ping @harensen to chime in too, as this is a goal near and dear to his heart and one that we could probably have an entire 1-hour (or longer) webinar about. (Maybe we should!)
