In this presentation, I will explain the ToroDev's ICT Convergence Approach and how it was used to develop an eParticipation model. The model is based on the UN's eParticipation framework, which elaborates on three main levels of achieving a successful and sustainable eParticipation process based on; e-information, e-discussion/e-consultation and e-decision making. The presentation will also discuss the decision theory and how it was employed in the design, development and deployment of an eParticipation system used as MobileSMS - Radion - Online a platform, by citizens in Kenya and Uganda to advocate for improved service delivery in health, education and economic development. Moreover, I will discuss challenges and opportunities of freedom of expression through the proliferation of ICTs and good governance processes in Eastern Africa. Lastly, the presentation will give hints on how to assess well the linkages between e-participation and policy formulation and review to aid the appropriation of public resources for priority service delivery needs in typical developing economies like of Uganda and Kenya.
