The disruption of COVID-19 has fueled fast-paced innovation and uptake of digital technology in all spheres of life. It has also exacerbated the existing vulnerabilities of poor women and men, leaving them even further behind.

This brief is aimed at PSD and MSD practitioners with practical and actionable guidance to optimise outreach and engagement and minimise unintentional exclusion in the development sector’s move to the use of more digital technology. 

The insights and recommendations stem from a literature review and the authors’ respective experience in the PSD/MSD, ICT4D, and inclusion fields.
