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.
