Ecuador: 10 million mobile phones at the service of development
The workshop on “Humanizing technology for rural development” was recently co-organized by UNESCO, InfoDesarrollo Network and IICD in Riobamba, Ecuador.
It discussed how the outstanding spread of mobile technology in this country (76,81% of the population has a mobile phone) could be put at the service of development.
Participants were presented with a wide range of examples and experiences on how the use of mobile phones can boost their income-generation activities and become a source of information that is crucial to development initiatives. Examples included M-banking, M-commerce, M-government and M-health projects.
