Accelerating Asian Development: Technology & Innovation at The Asia Foundation
Today, over 1 billion people living in the Asia Pacific can access critical information and communication technologies that just a decade earlier were largely out of reach. By 2020, a billion more people globally, many of whom are living in emerging Asia, will access the Internet for the first time. Underemployed, below the poverty line, and living with only the most basic education, these newly minted “netizens” will undoubtedly benefit from a new level of access to information technology. More and more people will solve real problems using eGovernment apps, voter information tools, open education platforms, online business services, and public safety databases. As these changes accelerate, The Asia Foundation is working in new ways to improve the lives of millions of people across the region. Learn more about how we are using technology and innovation to combat old challenges, and to consider how you can support this work during a time of accelerating opportunity and change.
