The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in September 2018 embarked on a Digital Initiative to support African countries in fully harnessing the opportunities of digital identity (ID) to facilitate the provision of legal identity for all Africans, and to leverage digital trade in the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement. Given the critical linkages between digital ID, digital trade, and digital economy, the scope of the work under this Initiative continues to evolve to address digital transformation. This expansion in the scope of the work is in response to the requests from member states to address the fundamental, cross-cutting, and complex impact of digitization.
