Grants to this Grantee
for a scoping project to improve data governance in Africa
The African Economic Research Consortium supports economic scholarship and collaboration across Africa to bring rigor and evidence to economic policymaking, and to strengthen local capacity for conducting independent research on problems pertinent to the management of African economies. This grant renews support to an emerging consortium scoping a new line of research and policy engagement on data governance, with the aim of positioning Africa’s leading economic scholars to contribute to ongoing debates about data governance. This grant is a renewal within a cluster of grants under the Evidence-Informed Policymaking strategy to strengthen a field of African institutions working on data governance. The goal of this cluster is to help governments in East and West Africa develop policy frameworks that balance public good uses of data with data privacy and protection.
