The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) advances digital inclusion to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so that all women, men and children can benefit from life-enhancing, mobile-based digital services.
In order to achieve the SDGs, digital technology needs to become easier for development practitioners to incorporate into service delivery. DIAL’s work focuses on streamlining technology, unlocking markets and accelerating the rate at which others can deploy digitally enabled services.
A partnership among USAID, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Swedish government and the United Nations Foundation, DIAL’s efforts help accelerate the collective efforts of government, industry and development organizations to realize this vision.
DIAL is staffed by a global team and is guided by a board of leading emerging market entrepreneurs, technologists and development experts. With this leadership, DIAL is uniquely positioned to serve as a neutral broker, bringing together government, industry and other development stakeholders to promote new solutions to old problems.
