Abstract:

Information and communication technologies (ICT)--cell phones, computers, Internet--hold great promise but greater access alone cannot bring about economic development. This is a major finding of the IDB's latest edition of its flagship Development in the Americas series titled Development Connections: Unveiling the Impact of New Information Technologies. This edition of IDEA draws on this book to explore what works and doesn't work in the regional context and to help uncover how to best tap the potential of ICTs for the advancement of Latin America and the Caribbean.
