GW raises awareness on ICT policy processes on local, regional and global levels. Gives the creative input of a civil society perspective.
I think that GISWatch is an unique project as regards the number of countries involved, and the variety of perspectives. But at the same time with a very precise focus, related to each issue and to the methodology proposed. The challenge is to find a story, a case widely en-richen the way in which the issues could be followed and understood.

GISWatch is a unique experience, I think. Don´t know if there is a similar project in other fields. Having each year the possibility of tackling a particular issue of the field of rights and ICT, convoquing experts to analyse it from different perspectives and counting with about 50 countries in each edition, to get down that analysis to each particular territory is very valuable.
