This is the protocol for a systematic review which will examine the evidence that is available on the effects of ICT4D partnerships on poverty reduction. The review will focus on lessons from both successes and failures of such partnerships and in particular on the role of governments, private sector and civil society in delivering ICT4D partnerships. It will explore existing models of ICT4D partnerships, and will pay particular attention to those studies that have used rigorous approaches to understand case studies of partnership implementation across different regions of the world. The protocol provides background information and details of the methods to be used.
