Description

Mobile phones, a rarity in many developing countries at the
turn of the century, now seem to be everywhere. Between
2000 and 2012, the number of mobile phones in use world-
wide grew from fewer than 1 billion to around 6 billion. The
mobile revolution is transforming livelihoods, helping to
create new businesses, and changing the way we communi-
cate. The mobile phone network is already the biggest
“machine” the world has ever seen, and now that machine is
being used to deliver development opportunities on a scale
never before imagined. During this second decade of the
new millennium, maximizing the potential of mobile
phones is a challenge that will engage governments, the
private sector, and the development community alike
