Publication: GovTech Maturity Index, 2022 Update - West and Central Africa Regional Brief
According to the GovTech Maturity Index (GTMI) 2022 update for the West and Central Africa (AFW) region, six countries are in group A or B (in 2020, there were only two countries in group B and no countries in group A). The remaining 16 countries are in group C or D exhibiting medium to low focus on GovTech initiatives in general. Despite progress in core government systems and digital infrastructure, there is room for improvement in all GovTech focus areas, and further investments are needed to address service delivery and citizen engagement challenges, while improving the digital infrastructure, skills, and other enablers. Based on the 2022 digital governance and GovTech projects database, 135 investment projects have been completed in 21 countries by the World Bank global practices since 1995. There are 72 active and 24 pipeline projects supporting various GovTech solutions as of December 2022. Total commitments are about 18.1 billion dollars, 5.3 billion dollars of which is on GovTech solutions, and GovTech investments are expected to grow in the AFW region.
