Abstract : In the light of the growing importance of informatics and its applications in various fields, UNESCO's activities in informatics have been strengthened for the 1981/1983 triennium. This growth in the informatics programme is particularly geared towards providing necessary assistance to the developing countries to enable them to take advantage of present and future capabilities of informatics technology. To achieve this purpose, transfer and adaptation of appropriate technology in informatics is very much emphasized. The modalities by which UNESCO is contributing to the transfer and adaptation of informatics technology are described and a brief analysis of the classification of nations according to their development in informatics is presented.
