  5. 5. Article: ICT WAR ON POVERTY 3. Conclusion My point is that there is another indicator that must be added to the human development index that can reduce the gap. I think that generate digital opportunities is the key to reducing extreme poverty. What are the opportunities? access, use and exploitation of ICT. Determinants for developing countries to overcome the low levels of development. If we ensure access, use and exploitation of ICT in schools and public and private schools can lower student dropout rates and thus the poorest children remain in educational institutions where they currently are assured of adequate food and this would help us also lower the rates of malnutrition and so on. Finally I think this strategy would generate a war against extreme poverty in the most vulnerable developing countries.
