Team Europe fosters knowledge exchange for a human-centric digital transformation

Edwin Kamar is the Deputy Auditor General of Kenya. As part of an effort to increase transparency and accountability in the public sector, his team is currently developing a mobile application to track the use of public funds.

In October 2022, Kamar, five of his colleagues, and three civil society representatives travelled to Ghana as part of a study visit facilitated by the African Union – European Union (AU-EU) Digital for Development (D4D) Hub project to learn from the West African country’s experience connecting with citizens through digital tools.

We will use the knowledge that we have acquired to implement a similar project in Kenya to help us fight corruption.

I believe that the digital transformation is something that depends on partnerships, on networking, and on exchanges of information and experiences.

Being able to access information on different experiences, lessons learned, and good practices will help us shape a digital transformation that puts people at its centre.
