Harnessing ICTs for development: Opportunities and challenges for LDCs
New information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become critical enablers for sustained human development. There are now numerous examples as to how ICTs have contributed to eradicate poverty and bring to the most vulnerable and marginalized populations basic services for the rst time in history. In addition, ICTs have also fostered the dissemination of knowledge for development and promoted good governance by enhancing transparency and accountability. For many areas of development, it has become almost unthinkable not to use these new technologies and deploy innovative solutions on the ground.
