image of Global E-Government Readiness Report 2005

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.

Benchmarking e-government

The UN Global E-Government Readiness Survey 2005 presents a systemic assessment of how the governments use the ICTs to provide access and inclusion for all. The Survey offers insights into the different strategies and common themes in e-government development among regions and across them. By studying broad patterns of e-government use, it identifies countries, which have taken a leadership role in promoting e-government readiness and those where the potential of ICTs for development has not yet been exploited.
