I think it might be a good idea to compile all the existing digital innovation agenda and protocol documentation we can find from all over the continent. There may be good ideas we can glean or imporve upon and “wheels” that we need not re-invent. Please feel free to add to this resource well.
Here are three items to get the list going:
A Protocol on Science, Technology and Innovation which was signed by SADC Heads of State and Government in Johannesburg, South Africa, in August 2008. http://www.sadc.int/files/3013/5292/8367/Protocol_on_Science_Technology_and_Innovation2008.pdf
SADC’s Regional Infrastructure Development Master Plan ICT Sector Plan (2012) http://www.sadc.int/files/9413/5293/3532/Regional_Infrastructure_Development_Master_Plan_ICT_Sector_Plan.pdf
