Abstract

This paper examines the trends and challenges facing Less Developed Countries (LDCs), in particular African nations, in this ICT era and offers some views towards bridging the “digital divide” between LDCs and the developed world. The paper suggests some frameworks for formulating ICT strategies to sustain the growth of ICTs in LDCs, particularly in Africa.
