The Role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Rural Development
Information and communication technologies (ICTs), particularly the Internet, are transforming all human activities dependent on information, including rural development. ICTs present new opportunities for individuals and communities to be not only consumers but also producers of information. In this paper we emphasize that there is a need to develop ICT strategies and investments for rural areas taking into consideration differences in languages, culture, socio-economic conditions and infrastructure.
