Technoligies de l'information et del la communication pour le developpment en afrique Vol. 1

Potentialites et defis pour le developpement communautaire Vol. 1

edited by Ramata Molo Thioune

Depuis 1997, le programme Acacia du CRDI stimule l’utilisation et l’appropriation des technologies de l’information et de la communication par les communautés d’Afrique sub-saharienne afin de leur permettre de trouver des voies alternatives vers le développement socio-économique. Après huit années d’activités, Acacia tire les premières leçons de ce travail en publiant, en trois volumes, le fruit de ses recherches sur les technologies de l’information et de la communication pour le développement en Afrique.

This volume considers the introduction, adoption and and utilisation of ICTs at community level in Africa; and explores the question of community participation in ICTs in various geographical, technological, socio-economic, cultural and institutional contexts. It assesses in some detail how communities in sub-Saharan Africa have responded to changes following the introduction of these technologies, discussing the opportunities and challenges they present for political and community development.
