Recently, a working group of international ICT professionals have been convening to expand on a set of nine Principles of Digital Development which came about in 2012. They have been exploring how to identify and overcome barriers to the principles’ success in ICT for Development. This looks like a good resource for  you, Mhabeni, as you work out how to best utilize mobile phone technology for M&E. I’m outlining the principles bellow but their website has numerous resources for each. This working group is set to release a report on in January 2016 which will include case studies. This community is extremely open and collaborative so it might be worth keeping track of their endeavors.

1. Design with the User

2. Understand the Existing Ecosystem

3. Design for Scale

4. Build for Sustainability

5. Be Data Driven

6. Use Open Standards, Open Data, Open Source, and Open Innovation

7. Reuse and Improve

8. Address Privacy & Security

9. Be Collaborative
