*Making an impact*

Making an impact

The Mobile for Development team drives innovation in digital technology to reduce inequalities in our world, bringing together mobile operator members, tech innovators, the development community and governments.

This three-day regional flagship event will explore the following themes: Connected Continent, The AI Future, Fintech and Africa’s Digital DNA. Together we will discuss how mobile technology is driving change and inclusion across industries and societies through the advancement of 5G, AI and other emerging technologies. 

Following the success of last year, M4D will once again be hosting a dedicated ‘Mobile for Development Theatre’, providing a unique platform for insightful keynotes, panels and discussions articulated across topics such as AI for impact and humanitarian innovation, agriculture and climate, and digital inclusion and gender, together with the return of the Mobile Money Leadership Forum.

Join our sessions and conversations to learn more about our research, insights and impact, plus get the opportunity to forge new partnerships.
