The overall goals for CIPESA are to develop the capacity of African stakeholders to contribute effectively to international decision-making on ICT and ICT-related products and services, and on the role of ICT in development; and to build multi-stakeholder policy-making capacity in African countries. In particular, it focuses on decision-making that facilitates the use of ICT in support of poverty reduction.
