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.



The emerging socially inclusive government paradigm: from e-government to e-inclusion

The importance of governance in development is accepted worldwide. The cognizance of close linkages between good governance and development stem, in part, from past failures of policy and programme approaches and the search for a more holistic view to equitable human development. The speed with which the new paradigms in development are changing is in a large part due to the emerging realities at the nation-state level brought on by the increasing globalization of the world economy and the urgency of adapting to the information society.
