Conclusions and way ahead

Way ahead, start with MoU

  • from (1) digital inclusion
  • to (2) access to education
  • potentially realised through (3) postal services
  • leading to (4) digital health, financial inclusion and societal empowerment

We see the University collaboration as a starting point for a broader coalition for digital inclusion

  • Take up the results from the meeting at the Dutch Embassy on digital inclusion and contribute to scale up the activity
  • Discuss the National_Knowledge_Portal as an entry point for value creation in countries

Action Items

  • Sanjay to establish MoU with UWC
  • Vivian to invite to Equals Group for Women Empowerment in the Digital Age
