Abstract

While environmental collaboration is being revolutionised by the widespread use of cloud-based collaborative technologies such as wikis, social networking media, and conferencing tools, freely available via the internet, the diffusion of electronic collaboration (e-collaboration) in developing countries remains poorly understood. In order to address this research need, our study examines how Environmental Non-Governmental Organisations (ENGOs) in two developing countries use collaborative technologies to co-ordinate and collaborate with diverse and distributed stakeholders towards achieving shared environmental goals. This paper explores how collaborative technologies can transform eco-collaborative efforts and influence the achievement of environmental objectives. Our investigation is viewed from an Actor-Network Theory (ANT) perspective which reveals the emerging roles and limitations of collaborative technologies as mediators of eco-collaboration in Thailand and Lebanon.
