The African Union Data Policy Framework

Strategies and Action Plans

The African Union Data Policy Framework is a crucial step towards consolidating African data management and governance. It seeks to enable the free and secure flow of data across the continent while upholding human rights, security, and equitable access to benefits. The framework provides a shared vision, principles, strategic priorities, and recommendations for African countries to effectively develop their national data systems and capabilities. The endorsement of this policy document by African Union Organs indicates a commitment to investing in data and developing infrastructure to enable data flow across Africa.
