Through the development of an Africa-wide research network, RIA aims to build an African knowledge base in support of ICT policy and regulatory processes, and to monitor and review policy and regulatory developments on the continent in terms of public policy objectives.
The primary focus in this past phase (2008–2010) has been on the supply side of the supply and demand research cycle. In this phase RIA conducted ICT sector performance review and the telecommunications regulatory environment surveys in 17 African countries and analysed them comparatively. In addition, a number of case studies identified important developments or innovations within the ICT sector requiring documentation and analysis.
