Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa


Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from a serious lack of infrastructure and human resources. However, the extensive mobile phone network covering the region has enabled the emergence of new publishing actors that have made mobiles their main ally. Traditional African publishers, for their part, appear in general to be optimistic with regard to new technologies: the foundations of the paper book industry in Africa have historically been very fragile, and the leap towards digital may represent a great opportunity.
