With societies locked down during the COVID-19 pandemic, total internet usage has surged by as much as 70%. While the crisis has enabled hundreds of millions to participate online, it has exacerbated the digital divide for the remaining 47% of the population who remain offline.
What policies, practices and partnerships are needed to drive digitization and connect the unconnected?
This session is associated with The EDISON Alliance, a World Economic Forum initiative that mobilizes a global movement of industry and government leaders across sectors to tackle digital deserts.
The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make positive change.
Speakers: Andrew R. Sorkin, Ralph Mupita, Ajay S. Banga, Shobana Kamineni
