E-governance research, analysis, guidelines and roadmap for African countries

This project will consist of the review of existing diverse approaches and preparedness of African Countries regarding the e-governance systems in place.

Based on the outcome of the analysis of the current situation in different African countries, the project will produce recommendations for further deployment of the e-governance/e-government and digital transformation for a limited number of countries. In addition, the project provides a roadmap that will display the countries capacity to develop coherent e-governance systems (both technical and non-technical aspects of it).

This roadmap would facilitate the preliminary work within Commission Services and discussions with African countries to determine possible pilot projects in line with the Staff Working Document “Digital4Development: mainstreaming digital technologies and services into EU Development Policy”.

1.The review of the current situation of e-governance in 55 African countries:

  • current state of basic information society and e-governance statistics,
  • systems in place for developing the e-governance infrastructure (for example private-public partnership’s),
  • regulatory environment (legislation acts, degrees, internal procedures etc),
  • governmental institutional set-up (structures, mandates of the stakeholders and their functions),
  • present capacity of the human capital in critical organizations.

2. The recommendations and analysis of the current situation;

3. Roadmap of the countries capacity to develop coherent e-governance systems (both technical and non-technical aspects of it).
