Mobile for Development is a growing sector, with well over 1,000 live services now tracked by the GSMA across the developing world in verticals such as money, health, education and entrepreneurship. The problem is that while the sector has enjoyed continued growth in a number of services over the last 5-7 years, scale and sustainability have generally not been achieved. This work is designed to inform and add insight to help address challenges to mobile-enabled services that can help to facilitate service delivery in developing countries.
This research has been developed by Mobile for Development Intelligence with support from the Rockefeller Foundation. This being the interim report, we overview and provide analysis on the barriers to scalability, while at the final report stage we will provide further analysis and communicate recommendations to stakeholders on how these can be overcome.
