Abstract

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have become important features on the social and geographical landscapes of Africa and Asia in the early twenty-first century. This article discusses the various institutions and forces that play roles in applying these technologies to the challenges of community development. Case studies punctuate the text to provide concrete examples of the ideas and potential flowing out of the ICT environment, especially manifested by telecenters. The discussion highlights the low visibility of universities among the major actors and argues that they should build their capacities to be partners in the ICTs for Development movement.
