Report: African ICT Science Cooperation Projects

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/aM

The FP7-funded IST-Africa consortium has published a study of bilateral and multilateral projects which focused on information and communications technologies (ICT) in Africa. The report specifically examined IST-Africa partners and according to the executive summary the aim is to “provide a starting point for a central repository of ICT projects and activities across Africa”. The study examined a total of 18 partner countries including Senegal, Egypt, South Africa, Angola and several European countries. A detailed mapping of donors supporting ICT innovation and research capacity in partner countries is also provided in the report. This study will be updated throughout 2015.

New Report Looks to Future EU-ACP Cooperation

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/93

A report released by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) aims to make an important contribution to the discussion about what will happen after the current cooperation accord between the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Commission (EC) comes to an end in 2020. The report entitled ‘The Future of ACP-EU relations post 2020: An Overview of relevant analysis by ECDPM, states that a post-Cotonou agreement (the original cooperation agreement between the ACP and the EC) is “now beginning in earnest”. The report contains perspectives on future relations, areas of the Cotonou agreement which warrants further exploration and a review of current structures involved in the cooperation.
