Investing to Connect
This white paper seeks to articulate the impacts of connectivity and propose a framework of financial, social and economic key performance indicators (KPIs) for the Last-Mile Connectivity (LMC) sector, in order to ultimately drive investments in the sector. The purpose of the framework is to illuminate impact pathways that link investments in LMC enterprises to positive development outcomes. The paper builds on the existing literature pertinent to impact measurement in the connectivity sector and lays out a set of business, outcome and impact metrics that can be used by enterprises and investors to tangibly measure and articulate the anticipated commercial value and positive social impacts of connectivity.
