United Nations e-Government Survey 2018

Posted by Josephine Muchogu 2 weeks ago

This UN e-Government Survey provides a summary of their 2018 e-Government Survey on how governments globally utilised electronic methods (via the internet) to deliver services to their citizens to "support transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies".

While four African countries - Ghana, Mauritius, South Africa and Tunisia - were rated as having a high e-Government Development Index (EDGI), the vast majority of African countries ranked  in the Middle and Low EDGI categories.

Interesting post Josephine, thank you for posting. Quite a few interesting points within the report e.g.

page 14 box 1.7 Ghana: Remote access to wifi and internet services, 

page 32 box 2.2 Rwanda: Drones to improve health care

page 52 box 3.2 Disaster Communications Management, Prevention and Response in Madagascar and Uganda

Page 85 box 5.1 e-Ghana and e-Transform projects

The E-Government Development Index (EGDI) by region - AFRICA (Table 4) is on pages 234 and 235

The E-Government Development Index EGDI of Least Developed Countries(LDCs) (Table 9) is on pages 241 and 242

Thank you Charles for the more detailed highlights.

I definitely got some broader insights as to the extent of what is encompassed under e-Governance.  

I initially wanted to post it as a resource for one of the ideas that I have subscribed to, but soon realised that the application is wider that what I understand it to be, and that it would be of benefit to a broader audience. Hence my foray onto the blogosphere.
