Africa Goes Digital
The Building of an Information Society
52 minutes, 2005
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is revolutionizing our society. One cannot think of life without computers, the Internet, satellites and mobile phones. They are turning our world into a global village.
One continent is in danger of being left out of this digital revolution: Africa, a continent were peace, security and poverty reduction are amongst the complex issues governments are struggling with.
We traveled to four countries in Africa (Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia and Ghana) to examine the different approaches and the attempts to bridge the internal and the international digital divide.
