dc.description.abstractWhen governments develop policies, a major limiting factor is availability of sufficient information. Information often does not reach policy makers at the right time or in the form in which it is needed. Information and communication technology can support policy development processes by improving public participation, shortening the time frame for consultation, increasing transparency, maximizing stakeholder ownership and awareness, and providing opportunities to transfer policy-making responsibilities to a younger generation of policy makers. This report presents (i) a subregional case study on the application of the Clean Air Scorecard in Bangkok, Jakarata, and Manila; (ii) a national case study on stationary source emission standards in Sri Lanka; and (iii) a local case study on environmentally sustainable transport in Kathmandu, showing how information and communication technology can effectively contribute to building the capacity of policy makers and strengthening policy development processes.
