There are huge disparities in the global access and use of information technologies, and these disparities are not likely to be removed in the near future unless a concerted action is taken at the national, regional and the international levels. The 2005 edition of the Report presents an assessment of the countries according to their state of e-government readiness and the extent of e-participation worldwide. Like its predecessors, it 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.



Conclusions and recommendations

Trends in e-government development in 2005 indicate, that awareness about the benefits of the information society is gaining currency. Many developing country governments around the world are promoting awareness about policies and programs, and approaches and strategies to the citizen, on their e-government websites. They are making an effort to engage multi stakeholders in participatory decision-making - in some cases through the use of innovative e-government initiatives aimed at greater access and inclusion.
