Mobile technology, especially, has transformed the way we think about business and development across Africa. There seems to be an m-Solution for all that ails us, some way to cure anything using a basic mobile phone. Mobile tech is, of course, not a panacea. But it has helped us think about the many ways technology can help economies develop, whether it is deployed in a big city like Nairobi or in the most remote rural village. Many grantees and partners working with IDAS-managed programmes are experimenting with technology to bring markets closer to small farmers, consumers closer to financial resources, or citizens closer to governments [link to GTF program page]. Through our work on the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund, we are also challenging social enterprises to deploy renewable energy and adaptation to climate change technologies in new and innovative ways.
