Description:

The World Bank developed the Global Knowledge 97 website as a forum for discussing the use of "knowledge and information as tools of sustainable and equitable development." Visitors to this site can listen to speeches at the Knowledge for Development in the Information Age Conference held in Toronto, Canada on June 22-25, 1997 (RealAudio format). The conference aimed "to assure that developing countries and the world's poor participate fully in the global knowledge economy." The preliminary consultants' report (129 pages) prepared for the conference is also available at the site (Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] format only). To facilitate dialogue on the conference's theme, a mailing list, GKD97, has been set up as well.
