Erdoo Yongo

Policy Analyst,

Erdoo is supporting the development of policy and advocacy initiatives for the Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation programme. Currently, she is establishing new insights, especially those related to disaster response preparedness, to update the team’s capacity building course. She is also working with Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation development partners to embark on a joint advocacy and policy initiative. Following her time with the Digital Identity team, Erdoo continues to lead research on mandatory SIM registration, however, exploring its relation to humanitarian crises and responses. Prior to joining the GSMA, Erdoo worked for the Shadow Home Secretary on an array of issues. She holds a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from The University of Manchester. She has a keen interest in the intersection of International Development and Policy and is hoping her work will help create an enabling regulatory environment for MNOs establishing mobile-based solutions to reach people in humanitarian crises.
