Mobile Big Data Solutions for a Better Future Report

Mobile Big Data offers a significant opportunity to create widespread social impact in line with the SDGs.
This report, and the accompanying infographic, illustrate ways in which governments and development agencies could deliver impact by harnessing the power of mobile big data to improve how they design, implement and monitor public projects.

The key findings of this report are presented as a series of potential impact statements. They represent projections of social impact that could be achieved if some of today’s promising mobile big data applications were to be scaled globally, in a sustainable way. The use cases and methodology used to create these projections, and their linkage to the SDGs is explained in the body of the report. But this potential impact can only be realised if government, agencies and operators work together to invest and leverage mobile data-powered solutions in innovative ways, to drastically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their response, decision making and planning.
