"Inclusion ready" in a digital age

The new wave of technology is radically transforming people’s lives and livelihoods. But, will the digital age benefit the world's poorest people? Developing countries have a chance to harness the new wave of frontier technologies now and chart their own new pathways for prosperity. Wiring nations to be digital, connected, and inclusive. 

With three billion people predicted to be offline still in 2023, with many more failing to reap the internet’s full potential – the time to address digital exclusion is now.  

The Pathways Commission provides hard evidence to help developing country governments navigate their digital pathways - enabling them to take control and chart their own pathways for prosperity.
