by Frank Makoza; Wallace Chigona
International Journal of Technology, Policy and Management (IJTPM), Vol. 16, No. 3, 2016

Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of policy learning on the national ICT policy implementation between Malawi and Rwanda. The study used qualitative data from key informants and policy documents to highlight the exchange of knowledge between two African countries. The findings showed Malawi learnt from Rwanda on institutional arrangements and local human capacity development on the national ICT policy implementation. Institutional settings were important in establishing the roles of policy implementation agencies. Other lessons were about the need for political will and strengthening ICT investment partnerships. The study addresses part of the paucity of studies on policy learning in the context of developing countries.
