This report aims to give an overview of what DAC members (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and the Commission of the European Communities) currently know about how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) use in developing economies can stimulate economic growth and poverty reduction. It draws attention to the cross-cutting applications of ICTs, to their role as tools, not goals, and links their use to development co-operation. The report presents three key discussions, namely, the contribution of ICTs to pro-poor growth, the contribution of ICTs to the Millennium Development Goals, drawing attention to the processes that lead to the goals and at poverty-reduction good practice and relates what is currently known to the role of ICTs.
