USAID, together with USAID's Mobile Solutions Technical Assistance and Research (mSTAR) project is hosting a two-day Mobiles for Development Forum in Bangkok, Thailand on January 20 and 21, 2015.

The Mobiles for Development Asia Forum is a follow up to the successful one-day forum held in January 2014. That forum focused on showcasing successful examples of the use of mobile tools for development and discussing challenges/opportunities in designing and applying mobiles to development (click here for more details on the previous forum).

The Mobiles for Development Asia Forum 2015 seeks to expand upon those themes by catalyzing conversations and actions to create a more holistic and inclusive approach to mobiles for development, thereby resulting in lasting and genuinely impactful interventions. By popular demand, we have expanded the forum to two days to allow for a more in-depth exploration of these topics.
