ICT in Social Development
by Bhavesh Jha Bookmark and Share
 

“By giving voice and visibility to all people – including and especially the poor, the marginalized and members of minorities – the media can help remedy the inequalities, the corruption, the ethnic tensions and the human rights abuses that form the root causes of so many conflicts.” 
– Kofi, Annan, Former Secretary General, United Nation

Information and communications technologies (ICTs) are different tools and technologies to transmit information and communicate with the community (one to one or in groups). Through the use of computers and interconnected networks it provides a feasible and accurate platform to increase the mobility of information for different issues and exchange of knowledge. The society gets to know about the outer worlds’ progress and learn solutions of various basic problems. An efficient utilization of ICTs in different developmental initiatives can enhance the productivity of the projects and its impacts on the society.

Different ICTs’ tools and technology services can be very economical and feasible which can play a significant role in improving the knowledge capital and awareness in the community. ICT fulfils the objective of an efficient planning, monitoring and implementation of different development programmes. Its role has become very vital for the various livelihood projects such as poverty alleviation, health hazards, universal education, and sustainable development and in bridging the digital as well as socio-economic divides in the world. E- Governance in different states provides an interesting example of an efficient two way interaction of community with the governments. This provides a platform for the community and governments to interact and exchange information about various issues and take different initiatives accordingly.

ICT and other ICT led development communication methods methods can be of assistance in solving and designing projects and programmes that take into account the opinion and capacities of the beneficiaries. The governance becomes more participatory and transparent pertaining to focus on the local issues and developmental process.
