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

The Government of Senegal has shown a clear commitment to promoting greater ICT penetration and provision of ICT services, including in the agriculture sector, through carefully designed policies and regulations. The country’s EBA ICT score of 4.5 out of 9 indicates a strong enabling digital environment with regard to laws, regulations, and policies, while its score of 37.3 in the GSMA Mobile Connectivity Index (MCI) reflects relatively good performance on the affordability of connections and handsets, as well as network coverage. This achievement is largely due to the government’s commitment at institutional and programmatic levels to create an enabling environment for digitalizing its economy, including the agriculture sector.
