Fez e‑Government Project: An Initiative Transforming Scientific Research to Value in Morocco pp361-370
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are growing worldwide and changing many facets of modern life. Yet the digital divide persists with developing countries far behind. The low integration of ICT in emerging economies restricts opportunities in many fields of development. This paper presents a case study of ICT development in North Africa. It shows how the Fez e‑Government Project (eFez), through government and academic collaboration, has assisted and transformed many of Morocco's development challenges such as organizational misbehaviours and ills of bad governance in local government offices.
