Africa is a nurturing continent for digital. Several initiatives have emerged from public, private sector and communities to build an inclusive digital economy.

But, what are the concrete outcomes and benefits? In fact, there is a lack of tools to evaluate all investments, outcomes and to assess the digital readiness and digital dividend. To this extent, this workshop aims:

-       To define the key indicators that will help to evaluate African economies progress towards African Digital Revolution

-       To release the African Digital Revolution index (ADR Index)

-       To release the ranking of African Digital Game Changers

-       To expose strategic and tactics to achieve Digital Revolution in Africa
