ICT as a Development Enabler: A review of the case of Yemen

   
  The definition of ICT is not limited to or associated with computers and computer networks alone. ICT is “the set of activities which facilitate by electronic means the processing, transmission and display of information” . Another more comprehensive definition is: “ICTs are a complex and varied set goods, applications and services used for producing, distributing, processing, transforming information – [including] telecoms, TV and radio broadcasting, hardware and software, computer services and electronic media.”

Being one of the least developed countries in the world, it is no coincidence that Yemen, of 175 surveyed countries, ranked 148 in the Technology Diffusion and Creation Index in the Human Development Report 2003.

A strategic approach to the use of ICT for development in Yemen can evidently help the country achieve development goals including:

  1. Improving the health care delivery system.
  2. Improving the efficiency, accessibility and quality of the learning process.
  3. Creating economic opportunities, generating income, and reducing poverty.
  4. Making government processes more efficient and transparent.
  5. Creating sustainable environmental management.
