Advancements in digital technology are profoundly impacting society but have been slow to reach many in the developing world.
Persistent challenges that slow awareness and adoption of digital technology and services in the developing world include the limited reach of technical infrastructure and software maturity, the misalignment of financial incentives, uncertain policy environments, and scarce technical capacity.
These factors impede the scale and speed of delivering digital services to millions of people, preventing them from realizing the full potential of better health, education and economic opportunities.
The Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) is committed to identifying the most effective and efficient digital solutions to speed service delivery to reach many more people and position countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
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 to ensure no one is left behind.
