TELECOMMUNICATIONS IN ACTION
Designed to illustrate the benefits of communication and information systems to a wide ‘non-telecommunications’ audience in developing countries, Telecommunications in Action highlights the role of telecommunication applications in agriculture, business, education, environment, governance health and rural and urban development.
Written by world experts in the many applications of information and communication technologies; each section defines and describes applications, summarises relevant technologies, details country projects examples, profiles case studies, outlines working models, highlights examples of best practice, provides a general indication of costs or cost components and suggests how projects can be financed.
It shows how telecoms, wireless comms, satcoms, broadcasting and multimedia can provide the momentum to get development underway in many fields, reaching audiences that would not normally receive information on telecommunications as well as information and communication technologies. It also aims to encourage greater communication between ministries, regional municipal authorities, representative groups and the private sector.
