Information and communication technologies (ICTs), appropriately adapted, help
improve the livelihoods of poor individuals, families and communities in rural
areas and increase their income opportunities, thereby improving their chances
of escaping from persistent poverty. This Knowledge Map helps understand what we
know, both from research and from experience in the field, and what do donor
staff and their country counterparts most urgently need to know about these
issues. In addition, it provides recommendations on the use and role of ICT in
enhancing the livelihoods of the rural poor.
