Digital Inclusion
Our Team

About Us

Digital technologies and services have the potential to accelerate economic growth and build more resilient societies, but only if every person can access and use the internet. Despite unprecedented growth, over 55 percent of the world’s population is still not online—leaving over 4 billion people, 90 percent of whom live in developing countries, without the life-changing opportunities that the internet provides.

The U.S. Global Development Lab’s Digital Inclusion team works to reduce this digital divide by investing in programs that seek to achieve universal access and meaningful use of the internet. The Digital Inclusion team sits within the Center for Digital Development.
