According to bank provided information, the overall objective of this project is to strengthen the frameworks (strategic, policy, regulatory and conceptual) and cross-cutting (gender, climate change and resilience) dimensions for the development of Africa's digital economy. These frameworks are key substrate to guide the establishment of a single digital market across the continent by 2030. Therefore, the project will contribute to the implementation of digital enablers (universal access to broadband infrastructure, sovereign African cloud, African digital market, etc.), e-commerce and digital trade promotion programmes for MSMEs and Startups, and conducive ecosystem for digital trust, skills and African experts' networks. It will support the implementation of the AfCFTA, which is a key tool available to African economies that have been severely impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
