Vers de nouvelles perspectives d’actions humanitaires et de développement en Afrique urbaine à l'ère du numérique ?

Abstract : Digital, as a socio-technical configuration of ICTs, has a capacity for "amplification" and "calculation", generating "uncertainties" and "disruption". It certainly amplifies the resources of political and financial domination, but it also amplifies all the collaborative social dynamics. The potentialities of digital stimulate new forms of social organization, which modify the mechanisms implemented by human societies to produce and exchange. Thus, new prospects for humanitarian actions and development in urban Africa in the digital era seem possible. FabLabs dispositifs could contribute positively to the improvement, empowerment and participation of individuals, within the framework of a pluralism of appropriate technologies, and with resilient socio-economic activities.
