Description
 
The emergence of new information and communication technologies in Africa, advancing in tandem with emerging democratic institutions, is noteworthy. Over the past 5 years the annual growth rate for mobile telephony in Africa has been 65%, more than twice the global average. Linked by mobile telephony and supported by geographical information systems, civil society networks now have unprecedented opportunities to develop security-monitoring programs, provide information needed for effective health care, create banking services, and provide farmers with market information. Remarkably innovative uses of mobile communications, often paired with radio broadcasting, have created entirely new types of institutions that promote transparency, accountability, and security. Contents of this report: Misinformation and Violence; Challenges to Press Freedom in Africa; How to Respond?; The Ascendancy of Cellular Telephony; Expanding Access to Information and Networks; Mobile Telephony and Security; Remote Sensing Satellites and Event Mapping; Radio; African Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Innovation Centers; Organizations, Institutions, and Security; Policy Recommendations. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
