Besides its initial membership, other organizations and countries sharing the same vision, interests and goals will be admitted to the Alliance. PILLARS OF SMART AFRICA The Smart Africa alliance has 5 pillars which reflect the 5 principles of the Smart Africa Manifesto. These pillars are : (1) Policy, (2) Access, (3) e-Government, (4) Private Sector/Entrepreneurship and (5) Sustainable Development. SMART AFRICA ENABLERS The pillars mentioned above are built on four, cross-cutting enablers which will support the implementation of Smart Africa. These enablers are : (1) Innovation; (2) Communications and Advocacy; (3) Capacity Building and (4) Resource Mobilization. The 5 pillars and 4 enablers when effectively developed and combined will contribute to Economic Growth and Job creation, which remains the ultimate goal of the Smart Africa Manifesto.
