The full title of the project is "Transformation-Ready: The strategic application of information and communication technologies in Africa." It involves a series of sectoral studies covering the transformational impact of ICTs in:
- Climate Change Adaptation,

The aim of the workshop was to brief the eight consultant teams and to conduct bilateral meetings that included sector experts from the Africa region, who joined in by video conference. The workshop also agreed on a harmonized timetable for future deliverables, including a review meeting, 29-30 June 2011, in Johannesburg and a public presentation of the report in Tunis in October/November. The project partners also held a series of meetings to coordinate on procurement and overall approach.
