Digital Principles Advisory Council

The Digital Principles Advisory Council will provide expert advice and guidance to the Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL) to shape the evolution of the Digital Principles and to reinforce DIAL’s accountability to respond to shifting needs in the Digital Development community. The 8-person Advisory Council will be made up of representatives across different sectors, geographies, and organizational types. These individuals will have the respect and confidence of their fellow development practitioners in order to represent their multiple voices, needs, and desires for the Digital Principles.

Digital Ecosystem

Earlier this month, DIAL published the final report of our Global Digital Ecosystem study. In talking with one hundred tech specialists and representatives of NGOs, donor organizations, mobile network operators, and governments, we gained some great insights into the current state of the ICT4D sector.
