African Heads of States and Governments gather in Addis Ababa for the 14th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union at a time when the continent faces a huge digital divide. African women are disproportionately affected by this divide. The Summit’s theme ‘Information and Communication Technologies in Africa: Challenges and Prospects for Development’ is therefore quite pertinent.

makes seventeen key recommendations to national delegations, and private and civil society organizations.
