Abstract "The rules governing telecenter economics are not complex but they are unforgiving. If a telecenter revenue inflow does not cover expenses and generate a surplus to replace equipment - i.e. if it cannot achieve full financial viability, inevitable equipment breakdowns and obsolescence will eventually force the telecenter to shut down. If the telecenter does not generate sufficient income to cover operation and maintenance costs - operational viability - the telecenter may have to shut down even sooner." By Francisco J. Proenza, in “Bridging the rural knowledge gap: Information systems for improved livelihoods,” Dixon & Wattenbach (Eds.), which is based on a workshop held at FAO Headquarters in Rome, on 4-7 December 2001.
