MobileActive08: Frederico Dava

Frederico Dava represents Centro Terra Viva (Living Land Center), a NGO based in Moçambique. He is coordinating an ICT program which works for making information available to areas in his country where there is no distribution or access to TV, radio or newspapers. He explains that mobile technology is being used today for collecting basic information in the health- and cultural sectors, but that the technology needs to be distributed on a larger scale in the society, so that the benefits of communication and information technologies becomes widely accessible for the people. He continues to say that this is an issue that needs more attention and promotion, especially in a developing country like Moçambique, but that they are open to sustainable solutions and that there is great potential for the uses of mobile technology in the future.

This is the 10th interview from our MobileActive08 podcast series, shot at the conference in Johannesburg (organized by MobileActive and sangonet).
