The biennial Digital Review of Asia Pacific is a comprehensive guide to the state-of-practice and trends in information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D) in Asia Pacific, a unique series of thematic and country studies over time. Its carefully selected themes show the trends of the ICT4D field.
It harnesses the intellectual contribution of a sizable community of policymakers, practitioners and researchers from a multitude of disciplines from most of developing countries of the Asia-Pacific region while trying to reach a global audience.
To enumerate a few of its unique features:
A broad coverage
The list of countries span both developed and developing countries and covers both large and small nations, altogether over 30 countries and economies.
A personal touch and an independent voice
Authors live and work in the countries they report on; the individual country write-ups carry a personal touch that imparts the authors’ own specific background experience and perspectives.
Multiple & complementary perspectives
Many chapters are contributed by two or more authors coming from different sectors. We believe in the importance of the complementarity and diversity of voices, ensuring that the perspectives of the different actors are represented.
A communication sense
The face-to-face meetings have built a sense of community among our regional researchers and authors, and the community is growing. We maximize the opportunity of have all that brainpower in the one place for the synthesis of shared perspectives on regional issues and drive the agenda for future development.
