PREFACE
One the many challenges facing the countries in the Asia-Pacific today is pre-paring their societies and governments for globalization and the information andcommunication revolution. Policy-makers, business executives, NGO activists, aca-demics, and ordinary citizens are increasingly concerned with the need to maketheir societies competitive in the emergent information economy.The e-ASEAN Task Force and the UNDP Asia Pacific Development InformationProgramme (UNDP-APDIP) share the belief that with enabling information and com-munication technologies (ICTs), countries can face the challenge of the informationage. With ICTs they can leap forth to higher levels of social, economic and politicaldevelopment. We hope that in making this leap, policy and decision-makers, plan-ners, researchers, development practitioners, opinion-makers, and others will findthis series of e-primers on the information economy, society, and polity useful.The e-primers aim to provide readers with a clear understanding of the variousterminologies, definitions, trends, and issues associated with the information age.The primers are written in simple, easy-to-understand language. They provide ex-amples, case studies, lessons learned, and best practices that will help plannersand decision makers in addressing pertinent issues and crafting policies and strat-egies appropriate for the information economy.The present series of e-primers includes the following titles:
The Information Age
Nets, Webs and the Information Infrastructure
e-Commerce and e-Business
Legal and Regulatory Issues for the Information Economy
e-Government;
ICT and Education
Genes, Technology and Policy: An Introduction to BiotechnologyThese e-primers are also available online at www.eprimers.org. andwww.apdip.net.The primers are brought to you by UNDP- APDIP, which seeks to create an ICTenabling environment through advocacy and policy reform in the Asia-Pacific re-gion, and the e-ASEAN Task Force, an ICT for development initiative of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations. We welcome your views on newtopics and issues on which the e-primers may be useful.Finally, we thank all who have been involved with this series of e-primers-writ-ers, researchers, peer reviewers and the production team.Roberto R.
