Why a Holistic E-Development Framework
Much of the documented failures of ICT applications in e-government, e-business, e-education or rural development are traced to fragmented approaches that missed key enablers or operated within the current silos of the ICT paradigm. I would like to advance the framework of e-development as a holistic approach to leveraging ICT for development (ICT4D)—by pursuing mutually reinforcing ICT-enabled initiatives at the national or regional level. It is about creating an information society or knowledge economy “ecosystem”—an integrated approach that deªnes a vision, coordinates the work of stakeholders, and maps the connections to shape the relationships among diverse players.
