Competition and Recognition

The World Bank -Mission Billion Challenge – Global Prize 

Call for Innovation to Strengthen Inclusion and Empower the ‘Invisible Billion’ – the 2nd Mission Billion Challenge is now open!

The COVID-19 pandemic highlights how countries with platforms (such as digital ID systems, digital payment systems, and integrated social protection information ecosystems) are able to quickly scale up existing or introduce new social protection programs. In particular, countries with such assets have been able to efficiently make emergency cash transfers to vulnerable groups – such as women and girls, the poor, informal workers, migrant workers, people living in remote areas, and refugees.

The Mission Billion Challenge seeks solutions to how countries can increase their efforts to further support these groups – who often lack smartphones, computers and broadband internet access – so they can access services and cash transfers with minimal health risks.

Application Deadline:

14th August, 2020

 

Sector:

Big data, Connectivity, ICT, Internet-of-things, Smart city solutions
