In 2022, the GGO OoP will be investing in a new learning initiative to test and develop innovative approaches to drive pro-poor digital development in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
    • We will focus on solutions with cross-foundation value and will build digital tools, infrastructure, and capacity with the potential to support use cases in multiple sectors (e.g., Agriculture, Financial Services, Health).
    • The digital initiative in the GGO OoP has two primary pillars: Developing digital advisory solutions for low-literacy and low-digital skill communities and enhancing public sector capability for designing and implementing digital reforms in sub-Saharan Africa.

    • Furthermore, the SPO will use their expertise and network to contribute to GGO’s digital strategy overall and help lead the foundation’s internal forums and advisory mechanisms on digital.
