Imagine being able to gain information instantly about whether a development project is reaching its intended recipients, or where the next cholera outbreak might be, or track the fluctuating wealth of every district in Cote d’Ivoire.

Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 5 August 2016
Innovations in areas such as mobile payments and remote healthcare in developing countries are helping to turn the old development paradigm on its head. “It’s not any more the South which has the problems and the North which has the solutions,” said Alexander De Croo, Belgian Deputy Prime Minister. “It’s for the first time a real multipolar role,” as digital technology is becoming an integral part of society in the least developed countries.
When natural or man-made disasters occur, humanitarian actors need timely and accurate information to plan their course of action. Data, however, isn’t always easy to come by.
