Regional Human Development Report

Promoting ICT for Human Development in Asia


This regional HDR is a major step towards bringing ICT to the centre of the development debate. The Report's unique approach lies in its use of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)to measure and monitor the impact of ICTs on human development. Its comparative study across the nine countries in Asia highlights both the qualitative and quantitative linkages between ICTs and human development and the channels through which the linkage effects occur.
