Access to knowledge generally, and to learning materials more particularly, is of crucial importance to developing nations because it is one of the keys to unlocking sustainable development. The African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) project is probing the relationship between national copyright environments and access to knowledge in African countries. The project is supported by Canada’s IDRC and South Africa’s Shuttleworth Foundation and managed by the LINK Centre at the Wits University Graduate School of Public and Development Management (P&DM) in Johannesburg. It currently has research nodes in eight African countries. These are Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda.
