This edition of SACJ is a special edition that focuses on Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) in Southern Africa.
ICT4D research (which inherently tends towards being multi-, inter- or trans-disciplinary) has contributed to understanding the challenges associated with the engineering, application and adoption of technologies in developing countries and contexts, thus impacting on design, policy, and practice. For the purposes of this special issue; the term "ICT" comprises electronic technologies for information processing and communication, as well as systems, interventions, and platforms that are built on such technologies. The term "development" includes, but is not restricted to, poverty alleviation, education, agriculture, healthcare, general communication, gender equality, governance, infrastructure, environment and sustainable livelihoods.
