Accelerating Development Using the Web : Empowering Poor and Marginalized Populations

This work is the result of the contributions, large and small, of a significant number of people. The evolution and application of ICT for Development has grown far beyond its initial stages, and ICTs are now thoroughly enmeshed in many substantive and policy aspects of social and economic development in its broadest sense.
This publication therefore is necessarily the result of contributions by specialists in various dimensions of this field, and we are grateful to them for having shared their considerable knowledge and experience.

This book is focused on the use of these technological tools in achieving social and economic goals, and, as stated in the Preface, strives to highlight both their strengths and their limitations. Among several other observations to that end, we acknowledge that the Web is a rich interoperable multimedia platform, but given the vast quantity of information available, the greatest question becomes one of access.
