TITULO: Pro poor mobile capabilities: service offering in Latin America and the Caribbean

AÑO: 2007
ETIQUETAS: mobile telephony services, mobile opportunities, service capabilities, pro-poor policy

This paper establishes the background for analytical and empirical examinations of mobile opportunities and service capabilities in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The analytical and empirical studies will form the basis of a regional assessment and, ultimately, to recommendations for meaningful pro-poor policy, regulatory and project interventions in the region. 

The paper recognizes that mobile services ultimately enable end-user applications and that insight into these applications is critical to understanding their existing and potential importance in traditionally marginalized communities.
