Internet Access Driving Development
The internet can create massive economic and social change through improved communication, information, and education opportunities. However, 60 percent of the world does not have regular internet access, and the bulk of this offline population lives in developing countries. Increased access could change the landscape of development, but creating tangible improvements in the infrastructure, regulatory environment, and political will required to increase internet access is a complicated task for policymakers in the United States.
