    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This report was commissioned to create an impact pathway for the Programming Historian to develop and sustain engagement in the Global South. It came about in response to a surge in readers from Central and South America following the launch of the &lt;em&gt;Programming Historian en espa&amp;ntilde;ol&lt;/em&gt; in 2017, the establishment of &lt;em&gt;Programming Historian en fran&amp;ccedil;ais&lt;/em&gt; as a means of reaching communities in francophone Africa, and data suggesting user communities in cities associated with the Indian information technology sector.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Research for the report was undertaken by Penny Andrews between February and April 2020, supervised by James Baker. Research activities included meetings with members of the &lt;em&gt;Programming Historian &lt;/em&gt;team, analysis of the 2018 Programming Historian user survey, and conversations with impact and community managers in comparable third-sector organisations.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The finished report was written by Penny Andrews on the behalf of the &lt;em&gt;Programming Historian &lt;/em&gt;Project Team. The compressed nature of the research means that the report is one-time snapshot of project activities. As such, many activities undertaken by the &lt;em&gt;Programming Historian &lt;/em&gt;Project Team are not covered by the present report.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The report was generously funded by the &lt;a href=""&gt;University of Sussex&amp;rsquo;s ESRC Impact Accelerator Account Fast Track Engagement Scheme&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
