Very good point, Carlos! In relation to mobile money, people in this group may be very interested to check out FrontlineSMS:Credit, which is a sector-specific FrontlineSMS  project aiming to make the platform useful for organisations seeking to manage mobile transactions. You can find out more here:


We certainly do hope to encourage more discussion in each sector specific group  here on the forum. If you would like to start a discussion in this group about your own experiences with FrontlineSMS and economic development please do feel free! Thanks very much for your interest.

No new comments in the economic development group, the last was a year ago, I wonder why?

Hi everyone! I noticed that the discussion here ended months ago.. I'm curious about how FrontlineSMS--as a great communication tool--can be used to improve societal condition through a system of mass information dissemination... I'm planning to incorporate this as a free service to keep key target recipients updated on the latest in the technology industry.. will be posting updates from time to time.

A value chain shows who makes money/adds value versus the effort ; accountability on the other hand is a slippery management concept when it comes to failure but very clear when it comes to success. What you appear to be alluding to are those who gain disproportionately to the effort/finance/risk put in?
Are you looking to develop some accountability chain which reflects "reward" versus "responsibility" taken based around some generalised metrics? Or what!??
Can you work up an example to indicate more clearly what you have in mind. best Peter

Dear Peter
When one looks at the state of society ... everywhere but especially in developing countries ... there is poverty and there is wealth ... there are decision makers and there are the results of decisions. With simple value chain analysis is becomes pretty clear who is winning and who is losing, but this accountability is not in any way "systematized" ... and I argue that it can be and should be! I ought to be able to do this on my own, but I think it will be a thousand times easier with help ... collaboration!

Peter , What had you in mind when you talked of "collaboration?
Who do you want to hold accountable etc ....

Comment by Peter Burgess on March 17, 2010 at 11:02am
I have been involved with planning, evaluation, project design and the rest for a very long time ... and would observe that the opportunity to use data much more effectively to guide socio-economic development has not yet been exploited. Technology has progressed in an amazing way ... the use of data to guide decision making and to hold people accountable is still in the stone age. Is there anyone in this group that sees a way forward and would like to collaborate.
