Technology for development

Understand the impact that new technologies can have on people's lives and international development work

The speed of technological change is rapid, opening up new opportunities and capabilities but also creating new challenges. It is important to understand the impact that such technologies can have on peoples’ lives and on the work of development agencies.

The group's focus is:

  1. To discuss developments related to Technology for Development
  2. To provide information on emerging trends in technological innovation (eg. Machine-to-machine technology)
  3. To share best practice and worst practice (why projects don’t work) including case studies
  4. To provide information on funding and projects/initiatives being undertaken so as to avoid duplication and foster partnerships.
  5. To maximise Bond members’ reach with stakeholders such as universities and corporations
  6. To foster relationships with funders of technology-related projects
