National Information and Communications Infrastructure (NICI) is a country by country planning process for ICT and ICT policy development. The African Information Society Initiative of UNECA coordinates information about NICI continent-wide.
NICI is described as follows on the NICI site:
A further description from the NICI site: "AISI states that although African countries are equally placed to take advantage of ICTs to facilitate their socio-economic development process, they cannot hope to move their industrially weak, subsistence economies unless they develop and implement comprehensive integrated ICT-led socio-economic development policies, strategies and plans. The NICIs are sets of steps to be undertaken by government to harness ICTs for development and to implement AISI. These steps include:
"Although at different levels of development stages, about thirty-seven African countries are engaged in developing national ICT policies and strategies. Out of these, about twenty-one countries have already completed the process of developing their ICT plans and strategies and are now in the process of mobilising funds for the implementation of various ICT programs and projects."
