The Mumbai roundtable on the 7th March 2019, facilitated the WBA’s approach to multi-stakeholder dialogue as an integral part of the Digital Inclusion Benchmark’s development process. It was attended by a mix of private sector, government and civil society organisations. Following an opening presentation by the benchmark lead, Lourdes O. Montenegro, the participants worked through a series of group discussions and breakout exercises on the following questions:
How can a company-level benchmark propel greater corporate
contribution towards digital inclusion and SDGs?
How can individual ICT companies at different layers of
the ICT sector contribute to each of the four dimensions
of digital inclusion?
The insights gained from the Mumbai roundtable discussion will provide valuable guidance in the development process of the Digital Inclusion Benchmark.
