What is the Digital Divide?

  • The Digital Divide separates those who are connected to the digital revolution in ICTs and those who have no access to the benefits of the new technologies. This happens across international frontiers as well as within communities where people are separated by economic and knowledge barriers. At WSIS Geneva, world leaders declared “We are fully committed to turning this digital divide into a digital opportunity for all, particularly for those who risk being left behind and being further marginalized.”
