A renewed type of development strategy, sometimes referred as Development 2.0, is rapidly emerging. It is coherent with Sen’s capabilities approach and the Human Development paradigm, and fits into to the Network Society context described by Castells. It is supported by a strong technological foundation (mainly through the extended use of ICTs), and driven by openness and innovation. Development 2.0 is ‘networked development’, and the future of development assistance will be to some extent marked by its trends.
