The pandemic has exacerbated the need to be connected in order to access jobs, training, and markets. However, the digital economy excludes over half of the world’s population who remain disconnected from the web, with more than half of Africa still offline.
This is an enormous missed opportunity: connecting the rest of the world could add $6.7 trillion to the economy and lift 500 million people out of poverty.
Building an inclusive digital economy that affords everyone the opportunity to lead a dignified and productive life will require reliable infrastructure, devices, and affordable data plans for all, particularly for those who do not have access in remote and rural areas.
