dc.description.abstractThis paper proposes a framework that holistically places the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Artefacts in Capability Approach (CA). The framework harmonizes the different conceptualizations of technology within CA-based framework in ICT4D, in order to address the inconsistences. To illustrate the framework, while simultaneously addressing the highest thematic research among post-2015 ICT4D research priorities, the study collected primary data from the users of Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) Solar Home System who reside in rural Kenya. Using the framework, the study revealed that ICT-artefacts can holistically be conceptualized within three of CA's concepts: under material resources as a capability input; as a new category of conversion factors (technology conversion factors); and as a competent within the structural context. The study further demonstrated how the same ICT artefacts could play out in three different conceptualization, resulting in different development outcomes for individuals. The study finally presents the implications for policy and practiceen_US
