  1. Electric Power: Regional Level
 ICT instruments (radios, TVs, VCRs, computers, etc.) need an electric power source. While electricity is available in most places, there are still areas which are not within an electric power distribution system (grid). Even when they are, the service may be unreliable or costly. It is, therefore, important to  ensure adequate electric power grid in each area of the proposed ICT-intervention Program  and in the buildings that will be used by the program.

Access and review the following documents:
Preparedness of the ICT Sector
Policies and strategic plans for ICTs in Education
Preparedness of the Education Sector for ICT interventions
    Those documents provide an overview of the status of the power grid countrywide.

    Step 1: Electric Power: Regional Level

    The Facilitation Team now needs to do the following:
    • Collect information to assess the status of the electric power infrastructure for each geographic area that will be served by the program (Listed below).
    • Investigate the adequacy of existing plans and what the proposed program should include to provide the necessary electric power
    • Examine alternate sources of power in case grid electricity is not a viable source.
    • Summarize results in completing FORMs for each area. A checkmark next to a Geographic Area below indicates a FORM has been completed for that area.
    The Team may solicit information from appropriate individuals or institutions by sending the FORMs as email attachments requesting that they be completed and returned.

    (Note: If no geographic areas are listed below, please make sure you have completed the list of Program Geographic Areas and Institutions requested in Tool 2.2. ).
