Digital cooperation to bridge digital divides
Although providing physical access to the internet remains essential to connect the unconnected,
it is not sufficient to develop local economies and ensure the equitable distribution of the benefits
stemming from digital technology.
Why it matters
While basic access to ICTs has improved
over the past decade in advanced and
emerging economies alike, the nature
and complexity of the digital divide has changed. Public and private actors must find new ways to collaborate and respond to these new challenges.
