Niyel, with support from the Hewlett Foundation, Omidyar Network, and Ford Foundation, is testing the interest of organizations to explore cross-collaboration on research, advocacy and evidence-based policy in the African data governance field.

The Africa Data Governance Opportunity Fund will support organizations with interest in African data governance with resources to carry out joint research and advocacy initiatives in the advancement of the field that:

  1. Prioritize cross-country/regional initiatives

  2. Focus on evidence for policy change and advocacy

  3. Encourage collaboration between research and advocacy institutions

It will also provide funding, institutional support, or connections that strengthen data governance organizations' ability to engage with national and regional stakeholders including Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and the African Union (AU).
