INNOVATION & DIGITAL POLICY

Overview
Innovation and digital solutions provide immense opportunities for Africa to transform its economies and societies. In some areas – such as mobile money – Africa is already a global leader, but to leverage its potential, African countries need well-informed and equitable digital policies. The continent lags the rest of the world in connectivity, data ownership, privacy and security, digital infrastructure, and broader digital strategies.

Our work on digital policy and innovation is done in partnership with the private sector, civil society, and the African and global development community. We focus on the need for robust digital strategies, strengthening innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems, advancing critical digital infrastructure, and enhancing digital skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Our research, policy advice, and advocacy support African governments to design good innovation and digital policies.
