Information about the project
NEPAD e-Governance Programme
The NEPAD e-Africa Commission, with the Commonwealth Secretariat convened two workshops to advance the e-Governance agenda in the African continent. The first workshop, Strategic Gap Analysis Workshop, June 2006, was based on an e-readiness assessment of a representative sample of twenty African countries and assisted, through an intense multi-stakeholder consultation and brainstorming, with the identification of themes and their prioritization to enable the development and implementation of the NEPAD e-Governance Programme. The second workshop, November 2006, built on these prioritized themes and developed an integrated “NEPAD e-Governance Strategic Plan”, which will form the framework upon which ICT will be used to support good governance in the African continent in the context of NEPAD.
