WS 271 Making Global Data Governance Work for Developing Countries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Data governance has been a key topic in the global agenda, but much of the debate has been driven by the interests of richer nations. This workshop will discuss data governance priorities for developing countries and how to make the future IGF Plus model for global digital cooperation work for low- and middle-income countries.

The workshop will also be an opportunity to discuss the findings of the paper Digital diplomacy: technology governance for developing countries, based on a consultation with developing country policymakers, businesses, academics and civil society to identify their key priorities for cross-border digital governance.
