The primary function of connectivity is to improve people’s lives. This is the primary purpose of the Internet for All project, which catalyses and facilitates broader multi stakeholder cooperation on internet inclusion both at global and country level. At the global level, Internet for All and the Broadband Commission support principles of digital inclusion and contribute to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the country level, Internet for All is currently operational in Rwanda, South Africa, Argentina, and Jordan. Special mention was given to the forthcoming launch of a new financing platform for connectivity infrastructure, an effort that links the global level and country-level work. Developed by a sub-group of the Internet for All Global Steering Committee, the platform will launch in South Africa as part of its Internet for All country project in March 2018.
