ICT Policy Formulation and e-Strategy Development

Subtitle : Comprehensive Guidebook

Abstract :
The aim of this guidebook is to explain the nature of people-focused ICT policy formulation and strategy development. It uses examples from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. It focuses on the steps required in developing ICT policies, including appropriate e-readiness assessment methodologies, participatory methodologies and visioning exercises. Also discussed are questions that need to be considered in developing an ICT strategy, the sectors that ICT policy-making needs to deal with, and the approaches to ICT action planning. It also covers sectoral strategies, including e-government, e-business and e-commerce, e-health, ICTs applied to learning at all levels, ICTs for scientific research and development, and ICTs for local and community development. This guidebook will be useful to planning officers seeking to introduce ICTs in national development planning at every level - national, provincial, district, local and community. It will help them understand some of the issues and concerns. It will assist them in dealing with the challenges of introducing technology in conditions that a priori may not always appear conducive or, in some circumstances, may seem completely inappropriate given other development needs and priorities. This guidebook will also be useful for decision makers and development practitioners in government and development organisations including NGOs. It can be utilised at the community level by those who seek to understand ICT's role in development, and how they can organise, plan and marshal resources to best meet the needs of their constituencies using ICTs.
