E-well: Multi-sectoral development of rural areas
Key aspects of the “e-well”-project concern the evaluation of the impact and sustainability of integrated, multi-sectoral approaches to the development of rural areas in the least advanced countries. The development approaches include, but are note limited to, the usage of multi-purpose tele-centres and the formalisation and publication of local, collective knowledge. Aim is also a reduction of the Digital Divide, particularly obvious in rural areas of developing countries. Focus is on sustainability by fostering simultaneous development activities in multiple sectors (education, health, economy, culture) based on the assessment of local needs.
