In the context of the European Year of Development EIF presents 'ICT and Development', a booklet showcasing concrete examples of the kind of work currently being undertaken by some EIF Business and Associate members in the area of ICT and development.
Far from being a compendium of all such activities, we offer a sample of successful partnerships among stakeholders in developing countries. The preface includes an introduction signed by 9 MEPs as well as a letter by Mr. Günther Oettinger, EU Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society.
This publication was presented and distributed at the EIF event 'European Year for Development / ICT and developing countries' chaired by Julie Ward MEP.
In 2007 EIF published its first booklet of this kind, ‘ICT and Development - Examples of Successful Partnerships among Stakeholders in Developing Countries’ (pdf download).
We thank the EIF Steering Committee for supporting this initiative and EIF members for their contributions.
The contents of this booklet do not represent the views or endorsement of EIF.
