Handbook for AI Policy Maker Capacity Building

The German Development Cooperation initiative 'FAIR Forward – Artificial Intelligence for All' and the HSRC have compiled a handbook for AI policy maker capacity building. 

Participatory Policy Methods

There are a variety of methods for actively involving wider audiences and affected communities in public policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. This is a working resource page so email us additional links.

Artificial Intelligence in Africa

Building on the AI & Data series, we are working with partners on a number of AI policy initiatives. This includes a peer-learning programme with policy makers from five African countries and an observatory on responsible AI.

Open Data Engagements & Toolkit

PAN is working with partners in the Open Data South Africa initiative to host regular workshops on using data for social impact and policy action. We also maintain the open data toolkit.

Capacity Building on Evidence Synthesis and EIDM

There are many interesting conferences, networks and events for learning more about evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) and evidence synthesis on the African continent.

Evidence Mapping and Synthesis

PAN is working with the Departments of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) and Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) to identify and synthesise evidence related to health systems and local government respectively.

Innovate Durban Funding Map

PAN collaborated with Innovate Durban, an entity established by eThekwini Municipality, and local innovators to develop a map of innovation funding in South Africa. A beta version of the map was launched at the Innovation Festival in June 2021.

Policy Development Framework, Impact Assessment & Evaluation

The National Policy Development Framework aims to regulate policy management processes in South Africa and embed the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment System in the policymaking process.

AI & Data Topical Guide Series

Can artificial intelligence (AI) and data support a more inclusive and equitable South Africa? PAN collaborated with the University of Pretoria to publish a series of nine Topical Guides on the social and policy implications of AI and data.
