Bridging the digital divide
Digitalization has profoundly affected the dynamics of global industries, patterns of economic development and the functioning of people’s daily lives. As the use of Internet and information communications technology (ICT) expands across the globe and the digital sector outpaces growth in other sectors, digital technology has asserted itself a crucial component of successful participation in societal and economic activities.
Nearly half of the world’s population remains offline and excluded from the benefits of digitalization. This growing “digital divide” negatively affects socio-economically disadvantaged individuals and groups, such as low-income households, rural communities, the elderly, the illiterate, persons with disabilities, as well as micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
