Abstract [en]

The objective of this study is to contribute to the analysis of the ICT situation in rural Zambia. The study aims to identify Critical Success Factors essential for ICT implementation and use within a district in Zambia. Data was collected during a two-month field study in the eastern part of Zambia. We carried out interviews with people from different areas of activities. The study provides a characterization of the ICT situation in a rural Zambian context based on conceptions expressed in interviews with local people. The factors range from national to local level. Notably, the Critical Success Factors are not limited to technology. In fact, most Critical Success Factors in our study relate to socio-cultural and governmental issues, which need to be addressed before and parallel to technological solutions
