BYTE BY BYTE: Policy Innovation for Transforming Africa’s Food System with Digital Technologies - Nigeria Case Study 2019

Digitalization in Nigeria’s agriculture sector is advancing rapidly. The government’s drive to shift away from oil revenues and toward less-developed sectors is providing a strong stimulus to modernize the agriculture sector. Nigeria’s score of 4.5 of 9i on the World Bank’s EBA ICT Index indicates a prospering enabling digitalization environment. With a score of 45.9 in GSMA Mobile Connectivity Index (MCI), Nigeria is performing particularly well in providing affordable handsets, reducing mobile-specific taxation, and creating gender equality in the labor market.
