Module 1: Linkage between ICT and development



This module invites readers to explore the various dimensions of the linkage between ICT and development through case studies of ICT applications in key sectors of development in Arab countries. The module highlights key issues and decision-making points related to the use of ICT to meet the development needs, starting from policy formulation to implementation. The general aim is to foster a better understanding of the best means and methods for using ICT towards socioeconomic development, and to equip policymakers and programme managers with development-oriented frameworks and approaches that are either ICT-based or ICT-supported within a range of economic and social sectors.
