Mobile for Development
Mobile for Development is a dedicated global team within the GSMA, which brings together our mobile operator members, tech innovators, the development community and governments, to prove the power of mobile in emerging markets. We identify opportunities and deliver innovations with socio-economic impact in financial services, health, agriculture, digital identity, energy, water, sanitation, disaster resilience and gender equality.
To date our work has impacted 58 million lives across 49 countries. Mobile is the single technology which cuts across geographies, cultures and income levels and we expect the impact on emerging markets to grow exponentially.
