The Mobile Web for Social Development Roadmap, recently published as a result of the EU-FP7 Digital World Forum project, makes it abundantly clear that realizing the full potential of mobile ICT and Web services requires addressing two big types of challenges:

The removal of a range of access barriers (notably, limitations related to access channels, literacy, and languages) that currently hamper information/knowledge sharing and associated community building especially in rural areas.
