COVID 19 Advisory Committee Webinar:- Building Forward Stronger “Beyond response & recovery towards resilient collaboration.”

The Government of Kenya, in recognition of this potential, gazetted an ICT Committee on COVID19, that has in the last several months, received presentations on technologies, their potential use, challenges in their adoption and what are the potential enablers for their scale-up.

One key characteristic of successful technological adoption in this period of rapid change can be attributed to multi-stakeholder collaboration and co-creation. While response to COVID19 was primarily a Government prerogative, innovators, especially within ICT, created unique collaborations with Ministries, Departments and Agencies across the Continent to deliver digital public goods.

These collaborations have re-emphasized the importance of the African Technology Ecosystem and its ability to respond to crisis. It has also affirmed the importance of building resilient technology based SMEs: through policy and regulatory enablers, capacity and finance.

The Building Forward Stronger Showcase will feature some notable collaborations from South Africa, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Ghana and Namibia, with a view to provide a practical understanding on how to build resilient and mutually beneficial collaborations between multiple stakeholders.
