Information Communication Technology for Development   (ITC4D)

Information communication technology is promoted as tool for equitable development however it is also criticised for being deployed in a top-down way thus failing to address the needs of local governments and communities.  The focus of much of my work in Indonesia (and Northern Australia) has been on supporting the application of IT tools for improving decentralised governance.

I have placed in this blog training material that I have developed over the years for open source geo-spatial applications (SAGA-GIS, Open Jump) for natural resource and public health mapping and monitoring. I also are including some interesting hacks for creating useful, cheap IT tools.

A great discussion on the difficulty of introducing good IT ideas.
