Data Protection in Africa: A Look at OGP Member Progress

This report aims to understand and analyse the context and major barriers to effective data protection in the fourteen African OGP members and to make informed recommendations that strengthen data protection on the African continent. In doing so, this report focuses on three thematic areas that are of particular interest to OGP: transparency, accountability, and participation. Within these thematic areas, eighteen focus areas were analysed, consisting of common mechanisms included in data protection legislation that enable an effective framework and contribute to greater transparency, accountability, and participation.
