A new generation of mobile network technology can be employed to help deal with many of the challenges facing the human race.

That's the view of a senior executive at the mobile technology company, Nokia, speaking recently at ITU Telecom World, an annual UN telecommunications conference, held this year in Bangkok, Thailand.
