Disruptive technologies are transforming economies and societies, and present new opportunities for development. In this context, the World Bank Group (WBG) set up the Disruptive Technologies for Development Program, DT4D for short, which serves as an agile and inclusive platform to foster the design and deployment of scalable technology solutions in developing countries. The webinar was organized by FCI’s Disruptive Technologies for Development (DT4D) Program together with donor partners from the Korea Office Trust Fund, the FCI Seoul Center of Finance and Innovation Trust Fund, and also, colleagues from the Korea Office CMU; the Spanish Fund of Latin America and the Caribbean; and the DT4D Secretariat.
