Welcome to ICT4DBlog

Welcome to the ICT4DBlog.  We are inaugurating this to coincide with the foundation of the University of Manchester’s Centre for Development Informatics.  But it is also well timed in ICT4D terms – we have had roughly ten years of ICT4D (though the use of information and communication technologies in international development dates back to at least the 1950s).  So now is a good moment to reflect on ICT4D to date, and to look ahead to what its future may bring.
