Transforming Government and Empowering Communities: The Sri Lankan Experience with e-Development is a case study of why and how national e-leadership institutions, egovernment and e-society programs were designed and implemented. The book examines the process of building national ICT institutions, showing how to design and implement an integrated e-government program. Transforming Government and Empowering Communities also describes how a fund was developed to promote grassroots innovations that leverage ICT to solve problems of rural development and poverty. The book proposes national e-strategies be grounded in an integrated framework and institutional mechanisms that would exploit synergies and interdependencies among the different elements of e-development. Finally the many lessons learned so far from implementing the e-Sri Lanka program are summed up.
