dc.description.abstractAfrica needs to seize this opportunity, quickly. If African countries cannot take advantage of the information revolution and surf this great wave of technological change, they may be crushed by it. In that case, they are likely to be even more marginalized and mired in economic stagnation in the future than they are today. Catching the wave will require visionary leadership in Africa. The World Bank, other international agencies, bilaterals, and NGOs can all help. External donors should be encouraged to mobilize their know-how, their own needs for connectivity, their financial support, and their ability to dialogue with African organizations ~ all to empower Africans, including Internet service providers, so that they can build their National Information Infrastructures (Nils), connect them to the Global Information Infrastructure (Gil), and move rapidly into the information age. Several multilateral and bilateral agencies active in the region (e.g., WHO/AFRO, USAID, NASA, UNICEF, and UNFPA) are seeking to coordinate with the Bank Group in this work. A flexible approach which introduces technical and managerial standards to the many current initiatives will increase the benefits for all involved.en
