Digital Cooperation and Digital Governance in Africa
Key messages from the IOE-KAS-ACET expert dialogue series
KAS, the International Organisation of Employers (IOE), and The African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) have collaborated on three dialogues with experts and policymakers, culminating in an event at the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on July 12, 2023. These dialogues have been designed to facilitate knowledge sharing among policymakers, development partners, and other stakeholders in multilateral institutions to identify concrete policy actions to accelerate the development of digital skills in Africa. The three topics have been “Re-imagining Technical and Vocational Education and Training for the Fourth Industrial Revolution" with ACET as the lead organizer; “Disinformation, Data Management, and Citizen Skills” with KAS as the lead organizer; and “Technical and Soft Skills in the Digital Era” with IOE as the lead organizer.
