e-Government for Good Governance in Developing Countries provides practical supporting material on information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D), specifically, e-government implementation. Professor duo, Kettani and Moulin, in this book develop their findings and methods from the eFez Project’s indigenous experimentations into a formal framework for academics, practitioners, and decision makers in developing countries. The volume also reviews, analyzes, and synthesizes the findings of other projects to offer a comparative study of the eFez Project and a number of other e-government frameworks from the growing literature.
Through the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), this book addresses the fundamental question of how services are delivered by a government to its citizens – and, more profoundly, the obligation of a government to respond to the needs and expectations of its people.
