Abstract
As part of the project Fostering Governmental Support for Open Educational Resources Internationally (FGSOERI), six regional policy forums will be held, one in each UNESCO region, between January and May 2012. The objectives of these forums are to reach a worldwide audience of government policy-makers in order to: 1) give Member States more ownership of the project; 2) raise awareness about the transformative potential of OER for education; 3) enrich the information Member States provided in response to the COL/UNESCO questionnaire survey on OER policy; and 4) provide input to the draft Declaration that will be debated at the UNESCO World OER Congress in June 2012. This is a summary report of the regional meeting in Latin America.
