Investments in information and communications technology (ICT) enhance economic activity and quality of life in the developing world by expanding access to healthcare, education, and food and making business more efficient and secure.

Affordable, reliable, and trusted technology is a powerful engine of prosperity and stability, yet many developing countries face a substantial digital divide due to the high costs of services and devices.

DFC is committed to supporting private sector investment in internet and mobile service operators, telecommunications towers, and data centers as well as projects that are leveraging technology to tackle other challenges such as limited access to financial services.

DFC's investments are helping advance the Build Back Better World (B3W) Initiative, which aims to mobilize private sector capital for infrastructure projects in four key areas: climate change mitigation and adaptation, global health, gender equity and equality, and information and communications technology.
