LIRNEasia "is a regional information and communication technology (ICT) policy and regulation capacity-building organization active across the Asia Pacific. LIRNEasia ’s program of actionable research seeks to identify the institutional constraints to effective use of ICTs to improve the lives of the people of the Asia Pacific, not simply in abstract terms but in country context, and to work collaboratively with multiple stakeholders to catalyze the changes conducive to greater participation by users and suppliers. LIRNEasia ’s overall mission of capacity building seeks to contribute to building capacity for evidence-based intervention in the public-policy process by persons attuned to the specific national contexts within which policies are made and implemented.

"Currently, the majority of LIRNEasia ’s programs are funded by the International Development Research Centre of Canada (IDRC). LIRNEasia ’s work has also been funded by info Dev, a World Bank unit that has partnered with LIRNE.NET since 2001 in the World Dialogue on Regulation for Network Economies." [1]
