Ict and the third world
Class of Technical Sciences

ICT and the global information society face people in the third world with a threat as well as an opportunity. The big challenge for development cooperation is to change the “digital divide” threat into a “digital dividend” opportunity. In order to reach this goal, a vigorous and coordinated effort will be needed from international institutions, donor-organisations, governments, the EU, non governmental organisations, universities, companies and private initiatives.
