Abstract

The chapter presents a case study of an ICT-based attempt to reduce poverty (ICT4PR) in a rural Indonesian community. Differences between the theoretical approaches adopted by the implementing agencies and the difficulties inherent in achieving these aims in practice are outlined. The chapter is particularly concerned with how issues relating to implementation impact on efforts to move toward greater beneficiary inclusion in socioeconomic networks. Crucially, the chapter stresses the ongoing need in practice to move away from a homogenising digital-divide-style approach to ICT4PR, and to better engage with localized realities and contexts.
