Position: Consultant Project Manager in charge of Institutional Support for Digital Payments and e-Commerce Policies for Cross-border Trade (IDECT) Duty Station: Kigali, Rwanda Duration: One (1) year, renewable Deadline: 26th March 2023 at 5:00 PM Kigali (GMT+2) time About Smart Africa The Smart Africa Alliance is a partnership among African countries adhering to the Smart Africa Manifesto (herein after referred to as “the Manifesto”), the African Union (AU Commission, AUDA, specialized institutions and Regional Economic Communities), the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the African Development Bank (AfDB), the World Bank, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the Private Sector, Academic and Research Institutions. The Smart Africa Alliance (or Smart Africa) is a bold and innovative commitment from African Heads of State and Government to accelerate sustainable socio-economic development on the continent, ushering Africa into a knowledge economy through the usage of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). On 30th-31st January 2014, the Smart Africa Manifesto was endorsed by all Heads of State and Government of the African Union at the 22nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union in Addis Ababa. This development places the Manifesto at the heart of the ICT agenda in Africa beyond just the 7 original signatories at the Summit to all African countries. The Smart Africa Alliance has since grown to include 32 African countries that represent 815+ million people. The Smart Africa Manifesto aims to put ICT at the center of the continental and national socio-economic development of Member States. This means increasing access to ICT solutions, improving accountability, efficiency, and openness through ICT, promoting the introduction of advanced technologies in telecommunication, strengthening the private sector, leveraging ICT to promote sustainable development. The Smart Africa Alliance as an organization is the framework for implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the Manifesto, designed to make it actionable. The Smart Africa Alliance is not a profit-oriented organization. Project Background for Institutional Support for Digital Payments and e-Commerce Policies for Cross-border Trade (IDECT) The Project-s main development objective is to strengthen the enabling environment for digital trade across Africa by developing robust/ harmonized e-payment ecosystem policies.

The targeted countries are restricted to those that are eligible for African Development Fund (ADF) Grant financing. The project will have three mutually reinforcing components: i) Component 1: Gap analysis and design of a harmonized e-Payment policy framework to encourage cross border trade and regional integration; ii) Component 2: Institutional Capacity Building and Policy Dialogue with key stakeholders to strengthen e-payment ecosystem; iii) Component 3: Project Management.
