ICT and MDGs

Several summary charts and tables highlight the impact of ICTs on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/).

One of the earliest is from the ITU (http://www.itu.int/ITU-D/ict/publications/wtdr_03/). It calculates the impact of various interventions using different ICTs in several countries.
