Abstract: Following an introduction to the concept of ICT-enabled development, this booklet describes how the Roundtable process works. The Roundtable process is then placed within the context of the guiding principles that guide IICD’s holistic approach to ICT-enabled development: (1) demand-responsiveness; (2) multi-stakeholder involvement; (3) local ownership; (4) capacity development; (5) partnerships; (6) learning by doing; and (7) embedding ICT projects at the sector level. Empirical examples from different countries are also provided. The main findings of the evaluation of the Roundtable process are then presented, followed by lessons learned and recommendations. The Roundtable process is a way of bringing local actors from a specific sector together to develop and implement their own ICT projects and policies as part of the Country Programme with support and guidance from IICD. Over the last six years, IICD has facilitated Roundtable processes in each of its 9 Country Programmes in Burkina Faso, Bolivia, Ecuador, Ghana, Jamaica, Mali, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
