ICTs to combat poverty and promote sustainable development
Dear colleagues, I would like to share with you some of my views on the challenges for developing countries in the world, where ICTs has become more available and accessible in develop communities.
Poverty prevents people from reaching their full potential and from participating fully in society, combat poverty works to ensure that the elimination of poverty remains a national priority, and that social and economic policies are directed towards improving the lives of the most societies, reducing poverty and empowering the poor are crucial ingredients for equitable and sustainable economic growth. World future in the global economy will depend on its ability to make significant and sustainable gains in its fight against poverty.
ICT is one avenue that has great potential to empower the poor and all stakeholders, including governments, the private sector, civil society, academia and international organizations must work together and leverage to ensure that the benefits of ICT are fully utilized in order to improve the lives of the poor.
It is widely understood that ICTs plays a key role to combat poverty and promote sustainable development, there is important aspect to the relation between ICTs, economic growth, and poverty reduction especially when addressing the needs of the poor and the root causes of persistent poverty.
ICTs boost the productivity of individuals and firms by making available new information and knowledge about processes, products, techniques and markets.
ICT is a powerful means for promoting social development through learn new skills to get new opportunities, empowerment that comes with understanding the capacity of ICTs enable global, rapid and efficient exchange of information and knowledge, it is important for us to distinguish between information and knowledge, and to understand what that distinction means for developing countries.
