Abstract:
The M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) invited about 20 development workers - both from NGOs and from other agencies - to spend eight days, travelling from village to village, visiting knowledge centers and other development projects of MSSRF, meeting the volunteers and the local communities and learning from one another and sharing experiences. This report introduces the third workshop held in October 2004. It concentrates on MSSRF’s work and philosophy and emphasizes rightly that at MSSRF ICTs are not seen as a technical solution on their own but as enablers in a process of local prioritization and problem solving. It relates the success of the program to embedding ICTs in a holistic approach encompassing a diverse range of development initiatives.
