In the past eight years, the infoDev program has funded more than 400 projects designed to harness the power of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to combat poverty and promote sustainable development. These projects highly diverse in geographic and thematic focus, as well as in the type of technologies employed provide a rich store of experience on what does (and does not) work in using ICTs for development. The projects offer a valuable resource to infoDev in its growing effort to building and share rigorous, field-tested knowledge on the opportunities that ICTs present and the challenges facing their effective and affordable deployment in developing countries.
