Yemen ICT4D Resources

1. There is no official national ICT policy for Yemen. However, there is a national ICT policy for higher education. The most recent version I could find is from December 2004 and is written in English. The documented was created during a Future Search Conference and was compiled by stakeholders from several Yemeni universities. www.academia.edu/5029849/ICT_Policy_in_Yemen

2. Since there is no national ICT policy, there is no administrative organization directly responsible. However, there is a website for the Yemeni Ministry of  Communications and Information Technology. http://mtit.gov.ye/ The website is in Arabic.

3. My case study was on NetHope, an ongoing communication initiative for humanitarian organizations. Their website is full of useful information. http://nethope.org/

5. The lack of an official national ICT strategy posed a lot of difficulties. There is good information about access to technology and related statistics, but information about government involvement is difficult to come by.
