The Global E-Schools and Communities Initiative (Gesci), in collaboration with the African Union Commission (AUC) and other partners, developed an African Leaders in ICT (ALICT) capacity-building programme. The first phase of the programme ran from 2012-2013, focusing on leadership capacitybuilding in twelve countries (Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia). A second phase of the programme ran between 2014 and 2016 and included four countries (Ghana, Ivory Coast, Morocco, and Senegal). ALICT has built the capacities of 487 mid and senior government leaders in 16 Anglophone and Francophone African countries, as well as officials from the AUC between 2012 to 2015. The Francophone version of the ALICT Programme is referred to as the Leadership Africain pour les TIC et le développement de la société du savoir (LATIC). This summary report was prepared by Neil Butcher and Associates.
