Identity Week Asia Day 2 @ 16:10

Connecting the last mile

The most important challenge in the world today and No 1 of the 17 UN Sustainable development goals for 2030 is “No Poverty”, lifting the remaining billion people above the poverty line.Of those in poverty, the vast majority are in farming, fishing or part of their usually remote rural communities. Good organizations worldwide are investing trillions to address SDG1 but they struggle to reach and connect with these people efficiently.You cannot eliminate poverty without solving financial inclusion, and you cannot address financial inclusion, at scale, without technology inclusion and digital identity.AgUnity are helping transform the lives of people in low income rural communities with smartphone and blockchain technology that is relevant to them because it is easy to understand and solves real problems.
