Ep 20: How the World Bank digitally empowers the young in developing nations

With a dramatic rise in entrepreneurial spirit among the young in developing nations, as well as the speed of response that comes with social media, governments need to digitally modernize from within in order to inspire and cater for the needs of their fledgling citizens.

Technology is enabling these nations to kickstart their economies and inspire their younger generations, mainly through the humble cell phone. In our latest podcast, Paul Miller speaks with Samia Melhem, Global Digital Development Lead at the World Bank’s Transport and ICT Practice, who has managed many such projects to completion. They discuss what is needed to drive these projects forward to a successful completion; how the word is spreading across continents such as Africa; and why ICT (information communication technology) has been key to the breakthrough in so many developing countries.
