Digitalization in African Ports: National Fact Files

The National Fact Files for Maritime Digital Maturity, a key output of the African Ports Digitalization Study, provide an essential resource for understanding and enhancing the digital transformation of port operations across selected African countries. These files cover Angola, Cabo Verde, Cameroon, Comoros, Congo DR, Congo Republic, Djibouti, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Sao Tome et Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Somaliland, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, and Tunisia.

Developed through rigorous desktop research and surveys with port authorities, the Fact Files assess digital maturity, identifying key drivers and barriers to digitalization within the maritime sector. They provide insights into policy, regulatory environments, digital infrastructure, and cyber-security readiness, facilitating targeted policy development, infrastructure investment, and digital strategies at the port level. As dynamic, country-specific resources, the Fact Files aim to guide stakeholders towards effective digital adoption, operational efficiency improvements, and enhanced port security.
