AbstractA global crisis in human development and prosperity exists. Its constituents include extreme poverty, illiteracy, gender imbalances, and armed conflict. One response has been the creation of the Millennium Development Goals. The recent United Nations World Summit on the Information Society affirmed support for linking the further development of the global information society to these goals. This paper argues that community informatics has a specific role to play in contributing to the realization of the Millennium Development goals and the improvement of human development in general.
