Issue 60: Rural ICT policy
The Africa Governance Monitoring and Advocacy Project ( AfriMAP) was established in 2004 to monitor the compliance of member states of the African Union (AU) with selected standards of good governance, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. AfriMAP works with national partners and civil society groups to compile systematic country reports on governance issues, using a framework linking respect for human rights to progress in development. Reports are based on a standardized template, allowing cross-country comparison and learning, encouraging debate, and highlighting best case practices. All materials produced are publicly available. AfriMAP works with national and regional partners to raise awareness of the reports' findings on good governance and human rights.
