Abstract: In the upcoming five years (2002-2007), IICD will work with its partners in up to 9 developing countries, helping local stakeholders to assess the potential uses of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for development. It will also strengthen the capacities of local partners to formulate and implement locally owned ICT-enabled development activities. The new strategy is based around increased efforts to build and strengthen 'ICT for development' networks in each of the countries we work. Here, local partners take full ownership of a range of activities executed through Country Programmes, making sure they respond to local demands. Further, knowledge sharing networks involving partners from several countries will focus on knowledge creation and exchange on the applications of ICTs in development sectors, such as e-business, education, agriculture, or health. Our philosophy is that ICTs are tools that can contribute to sustainable development and poverty alleviation. However, this only applies when ICTs are supporting existing development activities.
