for the Sustainable Development of the Archipelago of San Andrés,
Old Providence and Santa Catalina (CORALINA) has two documentation
centres, one in San Andrés and one in Old Providence. These centres
are open to the general public and students. (The centre in San
Andrés will be moved in mid-2003 to a more central location).
As part of
Small Islands Voice these documentation centres will be strengthened
with additional computer equipment, and training will be provided
to specific groups such as fishers, farmers, Adopt-a-beach groups
in the use of new information and communication technologies so
that they can take part in the 'information age' and share in
the wealth of knowledge, international development fora and programmes,
and even the important social validation that comes from exchanging
similar experiences and learning from others.
