Abstract

The advances and diffusion of information and communication technology (ICT) combined with the growth of the internet have led to deep transformations in economic, social, and institutional structures. ICT affects the performance of businesses and the efficiency of markets, fosters the empowerment of citizens and communities as well as their access to knowledge, and contributes to strengthening and redefining governance processes at all institutional levels. ICT is at the same time creating enormous opportunities and posing daunting challenges. On one hand, it has the potential to increase productivity and wealth, generate new activities, products and services, and improve the wellbeing of the population. On the other hand, the uneven distribution of such opportunities can lead to further alienation of marginalized communities and an exacerbation of existing socioeconomic inequalities. This chapter presents some of the best ICT practices aiming at boosting the social development of the majority contributing to the creation of a wireless and inclusive knowledge society.
