Development Connections takes stock of recent advances in what is broadly known as Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)—cell phones, computers, and related Internet applications, as well as software advances that aim at improving the welfare of societies by empowering them.  It is a comparative look at Latin America and ICTs in relation to the rest of the world and other countries in the region and the trends for widespread use of ICTs.  In turn, the authors seek to discover how information and telecommunication technologies affect both the public and private sectors of the region and how they can optimize ICT returns to society.  Projects focus on the use of ICTs for education, health, finance, environment, and labor.  ICT trends are crucial to policy makers and ICT development is critical to the future of the region.
