The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how fundamental digital technologies are to societies and economies everywhere, bringing new awareness of the power and potential of a digitally enabled world.
With more and more people using mobile every year, the mobile industry continues to increase its impact on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, with 10 years left to achieve the 2030 SDG targets, it is incumbent on the mobile industry, policymakers and the wider ecosystem to act faster to maximise mobile’s potential within the next decade.
