Understanding and designing reliable digital public infrastructure (DPI) is key to ensuring governments meet their development goals, transforming the ways we connect and work, while also helping society weather major global challenges, like the COVID-19 pandemic. But what does dependable DPI look like? And how can policymakers use it to promote innovation in their countries?

India is a current global leader in developing DPI, using it to implement widespread adoption of digital payments, data-sharing infrastructures, and growing its e-commerce sector. These innovations have in turn bolstered domestic businesses and spurred entrepreneurship. If implemented correctly, DPI has the potential to catalyze innovation and unlock market bottlenecks in all regions of the world–but the conversation must be broadened.
