Rahul Tongia, Eswaran Subrahmanian and V. S. Arunachalam have published a book based on two workshops organized by the Carnegie Mellon University and the Indian Institute of Science about ICT4D. I’ve yet to read it (129 pages) but the table of contents looks quite well.
From the executive summary:
Key aspects in ICT4D:
- Improve ICT across 4C dimensions: Computing, Connectivity, Content and (human)
- Success of ICT for Sustainable Development (SD) requires Integration, Scalability and Sustainability: ICT as a means (not an end), global inclusiveness, economic viability of ICT for SD, importance of ICT for SD collaborative research
- ICT for SD must become a recognized and funded enterprise: bringing stakeholders, developing metrics, focus on innovations and challenges, new models for R&D
