Description & Coverage
Description:

Technology has always played a decisive role in humanity’s progress. Throughout history, it has not only strengthened economic development but has become a powerful tool for human development. Nevertheless, the positive impact technology has on human development may become tainted by the risks it entails.

This publication describes the link between ICTs and human development, which includes economic, social, and political development.

This book addresses future challenges, proposing strategies to both governments and international cooperation organizations for moving forward.
