Global Development Commons Blog
The Global Development Commons seeks innovations that enable people around the world to gather data, share knowledge, forge partnerships, and make better decisions. Historically, a commons was land that everyone in a community shared to graze livestock. The Global Development Commons is a modern application of this ideaâ€” technology makes unprecedented amounts of knowledge available to the global community as a public good. The Commons aims to give the citizens of developing countries the tools they need to take advantage of opportunities and solve critical social and economic problems. By connecting, more people can prosper.
