The UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Motorola Company have launched an initiative to use information technology to promote human development.

Known as Mobiles for Human Development, it's aimed at making governments aware of the potential of innovators, particularly in Africa, to use mobile technologies to address development issues.

To find out more about the initiative, UN Radio's Jorge Mirayes sat down with Raul Zambrano, Senior ICT & Governance Policy Adviser of UNDP.
