Two expert teams from the U.S. and Germany outline their visions for a digital development agenda with Africa and explore areas and mechanisms for transatlantic and multilateral coordination. Apart from closing the digital infrastructure gap, both author teams call for investments in skills training and capacity building, in local innovation ecosystems and in assistance with building data governance frameworks and institutions. The U.S. author team explores multilateral coordination of financing as well as on standards for transparency, ethics, sustainability, building on standardization efforts by the G7, OECD, World Bank and others. The German author team engages with the EU’s digital development agenda and explores pathways for future Europe-Africa digital cooperation.
