Local Governance and ICT Research Network for Africa

Local Governance and ICT Research Network for Africa (LOG-IN Africa) is an emergent pan-African network of researchers and research institutions from nine countries.

LOG-IN Africa will assess the current state and outcome of electronic local governance initiatives in Africa, focusing on how information and communication technologies (ICTs) are being used to improve internal organization processes, provide better information and service delivery, promote principles of good governance, and encourage public participation and consultation. The African Training and Research Centre in Administration for Development (CAFRAD) will coordinate the network, ensuring effective implementation, a pan-African outlook and high-level dissemination of research results.

The project is expected to result in more effective policies and guidelines for implementing e-governance in Africa.
