At its twenty-third session, the General Assembly adopted resolution 2458(XXII) requesting the Secretary-General to prepare a report giving special consideration to the situation of the developing countries with regard to: (1) the results already obtained and the needs and prospects for the use of electronic computers in accelerating the process of economic and social development; (2) the various forms which international action may take to intensify cooperation in the field of computers and (3) the role the United Nations can play in promoting international cooperation in that field with emphasis on questions concerning the transfer of technology, the training of personnel, and technical equipment. The report is presented in two parts: Part One discusses programs for developing countries and Part Two deals with caveats, barriers and incentives with respect to computer technology for development. The principal conclusions and recommendations drawn from this report are included. (Author/NH)
