No sign of the Africa e-Governance Academy

The Africa e-Governance Academy was opened in Accra in July. Three months on there is very little sign of it (3 months to develop a little web site for the e-side?). It is hosted by the Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT, whose website seems to have disappeared. And no mention of it at the Open Society Initiative for West Africa site, which together with the UNDP has sponsored the academy.

Nor is it really an African academy. According to a UN job description for a programme coordinator, “Its primary geographical focus is on ECOWAS countries including Chad and Cameroon.”

COMESA meanwhile has plans for its own regional academy.
