Information and Communication Technologies and large-scale poverty reduction: lessons from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean
Type of work: Compilation
Abstract:The discussion papers collected here are intended to serve as background documents for the panels and to contribute to the global knowledge sharing and learning process. They should also increase impact, synergies and efficiency of the preparations for and follow up processes related to the panel events. The WSIS meeting is not only a great opportunity to bring ICT4D to the attention of the global development debate; it is also a unique opportunity to benefit from the critical number of participants in order to share knowledge and build partnerships.
Updated information about the panel events related to theme ‘The contribution of ICT to fighting poverty on a large scale: A synthesis of experience from Asia, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean’ will be available on www.globalknowledge.org under ‘GKP Forum at WSIS Tunis 2005’.
