Technological Advances

Summary

A number of technological advances can improve access to communication, healthcare, trade, education and infrastructure in developing nations around the world. Mobile devices enable remote communities to access personal banking services and healthcare resources. Solar power can improve the reliability of a power grid in developing areas, and enable these same communities to access the internet through WiFi.1 The World Health Organization estimates that 91 percent of the global population had access to an improved water source in 2015, due in part to the construction of public wells and sanitation infrastructure.2 The UNICEF Office of Innovation establishes partnerships with engineers and producers of new technologies such as 3D printing, drones and mobile banking tools with a goal of scaling the technology to benefit large, undeveloped and unreached communities.3 Show References
