Current projects

The IDIA will continue to identify and fund projects that support its members in specific markets and to develop global resources to help drive local best practice. Our role is to understand regional requirements and to provide an informed, independent and international voice to speed outcomes, maximise the impact of investments and deliver the best possible outcomes.

Regulatory database

An urgent priority for the IDIA is to provide the industry with a global database to help individual members and regional towerco associations share best practice with regulators and governments. This supports our aim to avoid fragmentation in the regulatory environment and secure the long-term infrastructure investments required for sustainable densification worldwide. Regulatory support for towercos


IDIA welcomes the opportunity to support the new Ethiopian regulator (ECA) in the development of a regulatory framework for communications in the country. In October 2018, the Government of Ethiopia announced its decision to proceed with the reform of its telecommunications sector. At the heart of the reform agenda is the drive to attract local and international investment to the sector. Discover the latest updates from our Ethiopian project

Our partners

As an organization, we have no interest in reinventing the wheel. Hard-wired into IDIA is the principle of collaboration – with supporters like the World Bank and TowerXchange, but also with other organizations and trade bodies, all with the aim of strengthening the businesses of members and bringing sustainability and influence to the tower industry worldwide.
