The main message of this white paper is that every organisation and company active in the development sector should be interested in the potential of mobiles and should take a serious look at how their work would benefit from these technologies. This message is based on exposure to various projects that organisations are already implementing, combined with several years of experience with ICT capacity building within the development sector.
After introducing important facts related to mobile growth and how social good can be achieved by utilising new technologies, the paper will cover interesting applications, services and technologies for organisations to consider, common pitfalls and limitations related to the complex environment, and activity areas that are believed to be needed to enable a mobile revolution within development sector.
