Mobiles for Development in Asia Award

The Mobiles for Development in Asia Award seeks to identify and highlight promising mobile services, apps, and other innovative uses of mobile technologies. Specifically, the purpose is to recognize Asia-based institutions and their mobiles for development work that has the potential to impact development outcomes in climate change, food security, health, governance, biodiversity and fisheries. While applications from any country in Asia are welcome emphasis will be placed on organizations and applications with deployments in Southeast Asia.

This contest is looking to identify and highlight promising mobile solutions that are currently being used (or can demonstrate the potential to be adapted) to improve development outcomes in climate change, food security, health, governance, biodiversity and fisheries in Southeast Asia.

In addition, the strongest applicants will be invited to present their work at the Mobiles for Development Forum Asia 2015  on January 20-21, 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand. The Forum will be attended by USAID staff from across Asia, other donors, non-governmental organizations, technology companies, mobile network operators and other stakeholders. Up to three finalists will receive a paid trip to Bangkok, including economy-class flights, up to three nights of lodging and three days of per diem. Note: Finalists located within the greater Bangkok metro area will not receive flights, lodging or per diem.
