n Mousaion - Information as a resource for rural development

Volume 20, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0027-2639



There is an awareness among academics and researchers of the importance of information for development, but also concern that it is not acknowledged as a basic resource in development planning. To understand what role information can play in rural development, an overview is given of its characteristics to determine how well they comply with the requirements of rural development. The different attributes of information are identified and then compared with features of other resources needed for rural development. It is argued that knowledge of the attributes inherent in information will, to a large extent, determine the usefulness of information as a resource for rural development.
