Information and Communication Technologies for Reconstruction and Development: Afghanistan Challenges and Opportunities

The intent of this report is to raise awareness of the importance of the role of ICT in failed state intervention and follow-on reconstruction and development. Afghanistan is used as a case study to examine and highlight, by example, successes and some of the challenges encountered in trying to rebuild a war-torn country’s telecommunications and IT infrastructure and to use it to enable other sector reconstruction and development.
