ICT4D: Information Communication Technology Development

Tim Unwin

Provides authoritative, scholarly, relevant and reader-friendly commentaries on key issues in the field of ICT4D.

ICT4D: Information Communication Technology Development provides an authoritative account of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in contemporary development practice. The book combines theory with practical guidance – including both a conceptual framework for understanding the rapid development of ICT4D. Case studies provide detailed examples of issues and initiatives from a variety of countries and organisations.

ICTs are becoming increasingly significant in improving the impacts of development practice. However, ICT4D projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America have not always been as effective as their proponents had hoped.  ICT4D: Information Communication Technology Development explores both the successes and the challenges facing such initiatives, and provides clear recommendations for how they can be developed in more sustainable ways for the benefit of poor people and marginalised communities. The book is essential reading for anyone involved in planning, designing or implementing ICT4D initiatives. N.B. Not endorsed by CIE, but can offer support material for CIE centres.
