eGovernment for Development Information Exchange

This project provides online resource materials and an electronic discussion forum building knowledge for e-government practitioners in developing and transitional countries. It addresses a series of topics of potential interest to e-government practitioners and suggests solutions to issues in relation to these topics. The solutions were developed through a mix of research at the Institute for Development Policy and Management of the University of Manchester, research in local partner institutions, and discussions on the egov4dev email list. Topics include: e-government success and failure; ICTs for government transparency; public health information systems; m-government; and building e-government websites. There is also a training guide on how to use the resource materials in a training course.
