SUMMARY

In view of the importance of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as a generic technology for developing countries and countries in transition, the Commission on Science and Technology for Development decided to address the development issues relating to ICTs at its third session in May 1997. In preparation for this discussion, the Commission set up a working group to review the evidence of the implications of ICTs for development. This document is the report of the working group. Although the impact of the technologies on economies and societies is not as deep or pervasive as some would claim, there is evidence that new technologies are transforming some sectors of societies, contributing significantly to the competitive advantage of those firms adopting ICTs, and increasing their export potential. A central pillar of the guidelines proposed by the working group is that each developing country and country in transition should establish a national strategy to enable ICTs to be harnessed for economic, social and environmental development goals
