Mobile Phones and Development in Papua New Guinea: Guiding Principles

Watson, Amanda H.A.


This In Brief gives an overview of lessons learnt from three research projects using mobile phones for development purposes, conducted in Papua New Guinea (PNG) in 2012–2013. It presents seven guiding principles concerning best practices for the use of mobile phones in development efforts. These principles will be useful for any organisation considering the introduction of mobile phones in service delivery in PNG or in a similar context.
