[liberationtech] Information about US tech-related foreign aid?

I know that USIP has just started a PeaceTech initiative that provides
tech-related foreign aid for peacebuilding. You can look up their PeaceTech
camps in Iraq (and soon in other locations). I believe the initiative has
come out of the Science, Technology and Peacebuilding innovation centre at
USIP:

Hope that helps.
