The m-Powering Development Initiative Report finds that technological innovations and initiatives that use mobile phones can potentially bring exponential benefits to entire communities and make a valuable contribution to the global development agenda.
It calls for the development of an enabling regulatory environment for m-Powering initiatives where no citizen is excluded by affordability, accessibility or availability issues.
The Report also affirms that mobile initiatives need to be addressed in a holistic manner to avoid a vertical silo approach.
The Advisory Board also adopted an Action Plan to guide the implementation of the initiatives.
The Action Plan identifies areas critical to advancing the initiatives, including advocacy and global dialogue, innovation and resource mobilization.
