African leadership ICT programme Phase II


Goal is to develop a group of ICT, Education, S&T and Knowledge Society leaders that can become agents for change in their own country and be catalysts for regional cooperation in the domain of ICT, Education, S&T and Knowledge Societies both at the country and sub-regional levels. The programme will build and strengthen visioning, strategic planning and management, policy making and related strategic capacities of future leaders and policy makers in Africa on ICTs role in the development of inclusive and sustainable Knowledge Societies in Africa. The results of the first phase encourage to continue with the programme that shows increased knowledge and capacity within the participants in ICT as part of the policy planning and also increased knowledge in leadership skills.
