This book highlights the application of participatory methods to the design, implementation and evaluation of culturally appropriate systems for local content creation. The examples are based on fieldwork conducted in India, Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka between 2005-2008. Participatory Content Creation for Development is a non-technical publication aimed primarily at program-side policy strategists, decision makers and practitioners.

This chapter defines participatory content creation and recommends that creative engagement with ICT should be an important element of ICT for development strategies.
