Le Mot du Président

The word of the President,

Dear ACSIS members, friends and actors of the African Civil Society for ICT and sustainable development.

A dozen years ago, in June 2003, on the occasion of the 1 st World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva, we launched together the pan-African network ACSIS in order to promote an Information Society. Solidarity and Inclusive in Africa. It was a heroic and successful process thanks to the seasoned militancy of valiant sons and valiant daughters of Africa who will certainly recognize each other.

Since then ACSIS has been formally created and started to work with all the adventures related to growth. To date, ACSIS has statutes and bylaws, as well as all legal instruments with its recognition by the Government of Senegal in 2008. ACSIS has also been a member of the ITU since 2010, the FSN, etc.

Through its members, ACSIS actively participates in all international dialogues on ICTs and Development in Africa and worldwide. (IGF, AfIGF, WSIS Forum, FSN, ICANN and IANA Transition, AFRALO, etc.). With varying degrees of success, national and regional coordinations and individual members of ACSIS have also contributed through the creation of national, regional and local IGFs, information, training and awareness-raising workshops on the issues involved. ICT.

These achievements will not have been possible without the invaluable support of the Malian, Tunisian, Senegalese and South African peoples and governments, but also of partner institutions such as ECA, the African Union, the International Organization of La Francophonie, the International Telecommunication Union, etc.

After the lyrical and passionate flights of the militant period, we must begin a new turn towards new caps. This is what I call you to all together we rise to the challenge of an inclusive, open, inclusive and accountable information society in Africa . For that, we must redouble our efforts and vigilance. Despite some progress, digital inclusion remains a pipe dream for many Africans:

  • Costs of the Internet and telecommunications in general remain very high due to low household incomes and high margins for operators
  • Penetration rates of the Internet remain relatively low (around 20% on average) compared to the rest of the world.
  • we are still surfing the Net widely using languages ​​that are not ours. This limits potential access to digital and excludes non-literate people
  • local and adapted content is very often lacking
  • we are often reduced to being mere users without much control over the processes
  • the generalization of the mobile phone alone can not fill the real deficit of access to knowledge and shared knowledge for all to resume the Dean Samassékou
  • Africa does not benefit enough from ICT spin-offs: Most of Africa’s most successful ICT companies are in the hands of foreign multinationals
  • The Digital Economy in Africa is less an opportunity than a cash cow …
  • the challenges of electrical and electronic waste remain intact in our continent
  • Cybercrime and its multiform expressions worry us every day more
  • we will also run the risk of ‘ gadgetisation-peoplisation ‘ with the place of entertainment in our access to the Internet (especially through social networks), diverting us from real issues (knowledge, knowledge, creativity, jobs, etc.)
  • There are not always adequate policies for ICTs to play their role of leverage. And even if there are, the governance of the Internet and implementation remain a major challenge
  • Our most intimate conversations, information about us (over 90% of email servers and websites), strategic data about our states, including the most sensitive, are recorded and stored in huge servers controlled by ( owned by) private companies located outside Africa
  • Etc.

It is all of these and other challenges that we face together if we want ICT to be a real driver of development. We must also be vigilant actors and not only users: We must be useful TICS promoters. It is up to us to transform these challenges into as many opportunities to create added value, innovation through concerted awareness and training actions, for quality human resources.

This site that you will discover is yours. It is a concrete contribution of the SCA to the emergence of a connected Africa but responsible for its own development. We hope to count on the commitment of each and every one of us, with the help of our partners, to make it a tool at the service of the peoples and governments of Africa in line with the global objectives of sustainable development.

Register, share your ideas, raise awareness, inform about your events, weigh on the destinies of our continent through this platform.

 

Long live Africa

for useful, sustainable, supportive and responsible ICTs !!!
