GIZ Customized Data Sharing Toolbox and Recommendations for GIZ’s Data Strategy

The GIZ FAIR Forward (GIZ FF) Artificial Intelligence initiative aims to promote and achieve a more open, inclusive and sustainable approach to AI at an international level. With partners in Uganda, the initiative seeked, specifically, to 1) strengthen local technical know-how on AI; 2) to remove entry barriers to AI by improving access to training data and AI technologies for local innovation; and 3) to develop policy frameworks ready for AI including ethical AI, data protection and privacy. In the framework of this consultancy, Data-Pop Alliance supported GIZ FF in the creation of fact-sheets and reports, and contributed to GIZ partnerships and events, including virtual working group meetings, events, and study trips, among others. In addition to this, DPA supported the creation and implementation of a data governance model in Uganda.
