This paper takes an interdisciplinary view on the societal role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). It discusses about building a global online community of practice for people working on community-based natural resource management (CBNRM), namely CBNRM Net. It points to some limitations connected with culture and knowledge inherent in the emphasis on ICTs in development cooperation.The paper states that the technological optimism that fuels the ICT side of the argument must be aligned with the humanist side, representing values and cultures. It concludes that a broad and result-oriented knowledge management approach will make possible a more realistic assessment of the incentives and constraints in using ICTs in development cooperation.
