Mobile government (mGov) offers enormous opportunities to connect citizens to their governments. Ninety-five percent of the world’s population now has access to a mobile network. Whether via simple, low-tech feature phones or high-tech smartphones, through quick-win solutions or comprehensive approaches, the mobile government offers enormous opportunities—but implementation also presents challenges. This presentation is held in partnership with the Austrian Ministry of Finance as part of their Forum Finanz series. It is based on a recently launched World Bank How-to-Note, which offers strategies for making the most of these opportunities and overcoming related challenges.
