EXPERTS KENYA Building an inclusive future through Digital Public Infrastructure 2 months ago Samuel Post Views: 121 Africa is on the cusp of a digital revolution that is poised to transform its economies, empower communities, and bridge the glaring digital divide. With the projected worth of the digital economy in Africa estimated at an impressive $712 billion by 2050, the significance of the continent’s Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) cannot be overstated. The transformative potential of Africa’s DPI is real. Kenya is a prime example. Success is of course predicated on transparent, accountable, and participatory governance. Pooled investments in foundational capabilities for coherent and strong local digital ecosystems are also necessary, to fully unlock the potential. Kenya is a frontrunner in digital transformation in Africa. Its digital economy contributes a remarkable 7.7 percent to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), surpassing other nations such as Morocco and South Africa. Accenture’s Africa iGDP Forecast predicts that by 2025, the digital sector in Kenya will add KES 1.4 trillion or 9.24 percent to the country’s GDP. Kenya is also a part of the ambitious African Union’s ‘One African Market’ which aims to lift 30 million people out of poverty. This vision requires open, interoperable, and secure digital public infrastructure, to facilitate cross-border trade among countries. However, despite these strides, Kenya, like many African nations, faces the challenge of an expanding digital divide, due to fragmented digital systems and financing.
