Privacy Regional Engagements are an essential part of the build-up to the Privacy Symposium Africa. These engagements are aimed at promoting awareness, fostering discussions, and building capacity around privacy issues within specific regions in Africa.
The engagements typically involve a series of events, including workshops, round-table discussions, and stakeholder consultations, which are designed to provide a platform for various actors to share their experiences, challenges, and best practices on privacy-related matters. These actors include government agencies, civil society organizations, academia, industry players, and individuals.
These regional engagements have been critical in creating a network of stakeholders committed to privacy and data protection issues across Africa. They have helped to raise awareness and build capacity among various actors, including policymakers, regulators, civil society organizations, and industry players. They have also facilitated knowledge exchange and best practices sharing, leading to the development of more robust privacy frameworks and practices across the continent.
