Raamweg 5
PO Box 11586
2502 AN The Hague

The International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) assists developing countries to realise locally owned sustainable development by harnessing the potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs). IICD works with its partner organisations in selected countries, helping local stakeholders to assess the potential uses of ICTs in development. It also strengthens the capacities of local partners to formulate, implement and manage development policies and projects that make use of ICTs. IICD's philosophy is that ICTs are tools that can contribute to sustainable development and poverty alleviation. However, this only applies when ICTs are supporting existing development activities. Therefore, IICD focuses on 'traditional' development sectors, such as education, good governance, health, livelihood opportunities (especially agriculture) and environment.
