This blog is organized according to the Millennium Development Goals, a set of eight priorities to close the gap between the developing and developed worlds.
At the top of each post, you will see the MDG icon that the post relates to, unless the post is about an overall topic or a local event.
Although we try to stick to design, it’s almost impossible to talk about developing world concerns without acknowledging the economic challenges and distribution difficulties. An eye-opening article showed us how important it is for developing world designs to account for local economic and cultural factors, not just functional or usability needs. Since that post, we have raised the bar a bit to focus on such complete solutions.
Thanks for reading, and please don’t hesitate to post feedback. This blog is new, and we fully expect to evolve it in the next few months.
