An exhaustive survey on the capabilities of e-Governance made in 191 countries has found its existence almost nil in most of the African and Middle East countries.
While money is the main problem in the former, the latter are dominated by rich monarchical governments that have a very different view of public service and are not interested in e-Governance. The most difficult parts of moving to e-Governance is getting government departments to open up, share their information and cooperate with each other. However, things are in optimistic reach, as countries have begun to see the benefits and the cost reductions of e-Governance. For launching such initiatives, requires technical expertise, finance, political leadership and good will of Organisations like UNU which would go a long way in serving the purpose.
