Information and Communication Technology for Sustainable Development shows how ICT as an enabler for all spheres of development can help innovate business processes and operations, and provide faster integration of new technologies into business systems. Focused on sustainability, it addresses strategic approaches to cope with climatic, environmental, and other global risks, and aims to promote prosperity and economic growth.
Furthermore, this book explores how the adoption of new technologies and collective action based upon a strategic behavioral theory of new leadership, responding to specific set of conditions that allows for the proposed strategies to cope with risks, can be applied and consequently finds solutions to the desired growth pattern that must be sustained, inclusive and equitable.
