9780850926729: Breaking The Digital Divide: Implications For Developing Countries

Dynamism and innovation are predominant features in the emergence of the information society and knowledge economy. The rapid deployment and proliferation of the new and emerging information and communications technologies (ICTs) herald new opportunities for growth and development. Governments worldwide are seeking to harness the massive potential offered. In particular, ICT applications promise significant benefits to include improved health care, easier access to public services, increased opportunities for training, work and leisure and, above all, good governance.Nevertheless, in spite of the obvious benefits of ICT, the field of practice is not without undesirable consequences and impacts. This is particularly relevant when seen within the context of developing countries where relative differences in both speed of adoption and access to ICT are most marked, contributing to uneven economic progress and development. The rapidly widening Digital Divide must be narrowed and its impact lessened to avoid long-term unwanted consequences.In Breaking the Digital Divide: Implications for Developing Countries, Elena Murelli ably and formidably succeeds in a critical analysis of the various dimensions of the Digital Divide for developing countries. The book articulates the issues and problems encountered and outlines steps the Developing Countries can take to facilitate growth and development within and between countries.Well researched, informative and authoritative this work will specifically advise and inform organisations and governments wanting to make the transition to an information society and knowledge economy. The message is clearly conveyed - no Developing Country can afford to be left behind.
