Review of the Bank’s ICT Operations Strategy and Action Plan for the Medium Term 2012-2014


In October 2008, the Boards of Directors of the Bank Group approved the ICT Operations Strategy with the aim of promoting access to and use of ICT in support of poverty reduction and economic growth of Regional Member Countries. The strategy’s goals are to support the development of regional and national broadband infrastructure and create the enabling policy and regulatory environment to attract private investment and encourage public-private partnerships. Key cross-cutting concerns include capacity building, coordination with others, and knowledge management and sharing. In 2008, the Board requested a review of the Strategy after the first two years of implementation. This review assesses the implementation of the Strategy during 2008-2011 and draws lessons for the way forward.
