Spectrum Trading in Practice - ECOWAS
Harmonization of Policies Governing the ICT Market in the UEMOA-ECOWAS Space
Radio Spectrum Management
Spectrum trading could be considered in the ECOWAS/UEMOA states. Trading would likely be limited to a few frequency blocks in the first instance. Any trading mechanism designed should minimize transactions costs and allow operators to change the use of traded spectrum within international allocations and the national interference management framework.
