Abstract: Conflict is the source of pains, losses and severe anxiety. Its existence and prevalence act as major deterrence to societal achievements. Conflict for many is however, an inducer of human initiation of survival attempts, plans and policies. This is often coupled with the adaptation of mechanisms and possible innovation that serve to convert the pressure of conflict into a catalyst for human achievement in defiance of such pressure and consequent devastation. This paper will then look into ways that made ICT a tool for survival and life continuity under conflict. It will explore the different sectoral projects which were/ are still capable of utilizing human determination to facilitate the emergence of more connected societies whose fabric becomes consolidated with the Internet and information access as well as wider dissemination of ICT into citizen's lives even on the governance level! The paper will further project human attention in societies of conflict to ICT and the role ICT plays in bettering life quality. This will be verified by living examples from two countries deeply affected by years of wars and disputes. Such verification is to be supported by data and graphs. The paper will further show how e-governance is possible in conflict and how the etransformation is achievable amongst societal ranks. It will therefore, attempt to devise methods to draw an inversely proportional connection between conflict and ICT dissemination.
