UNPAN Releases Its Annual Global E-govenment Readiness Report
The UN Global E-Government Readiness Report 2005: From E-government to E-Inclusion, exploring the interlinkages between e-government and development, presents an assessment of the countries according to their state of e-government readiness and the extent of e-participation worldwide. In Part I of Report, The UN Global E-government Survey 2005, like its predecessors, ranks the 191 Member States of the UN according to a quantitative composite index of e-readiness based on website assessment, telecommunication infrastructure and human resource endowment. Underscoring the importance of technological advancements, the role of the government and human development, it presents a vision of the future with technology led access-for-all. Expanding the concept of 'real access' to ICT into e-inclusion, Part II: From E-government to E-inclusion presents the Socially Inclusive Governance Framework, which is a multi- pronged approach to ICT-led real access, with a special focus on the need to promote technology access and inclusion to the disadvantaged groups in society.
