This report, compiled by Working Groups assigned a specific sector, evaluates progress made within that sector and the role of stakeholders involved before providing concrete recommendations for future activities. These activities necessarily involve many different kinds of stakeholders and environments. Analysis of the reports of the Working Groups on m-Health, m-Learning, m Commerce, m-Business Models, and Advocacy for Mobile reveals a number of systemic issues that are common to all these sectors. The m- Powering Development Initiative is a cross-sectoral examination of the potential and actuality of mobile communications, especially for wider development.



Preface and Acknowledgements

I am very encouraged to see that most of the growth in global connectivity is now taking place in the developing world. These billions of new users are likely to focus on innovations that directly benefit and empower people locally, and these bottom-up initiatives will bring exponential benefits to communities and make a really valuable contribution to the global development agenda.
