The ability to access and use mobile network operator data sources to improve development service delivery to the underserved has been a goal of the development sector for more than a decade. Numerous pilots show this promise.
DIAL is building on current knowledge by investing in three mutually reinforcing programs:
Demonstrating D4D analytics and data models
Developing and deploying a common data architecture
Strengthening the ecosystem’s ability to deploy D4D programs
The goal of our work is to improve access to network data, empower the digital development ecosystem to use this data to inform its decisions and promote responsible and transparent use in a sustainable manner.
