eCommerce Week 2022: Data governance, 28 April 2022
UNCTAD eCommerce Week 2022: Data and Digitalization for Development
Exploring a global framework for data governance
Organized by South Centre and IT for Change
28 April 2022, 5-6.00 PM (CET)
UNCTAD’s Digital Economy Report, 2021, considers the current impasse between dramatically opposing positions of ‘data localization’ and ‘free flow of data’ holding up the immense potential of data for development. It recommends that breaking this impasse requires developing a global framework for data governance, that addresses both non-economic and economic aspects of data. The session will gather views on how this can be achieved, especially at best addressing developing countries’ interests.
The eCommerce Week will take place simultaneously in Geneva and online from 25 to 29 April 2022, organized by UNCTAD in collaboration with eTrade for all and other partners.
It will look at ways to strengthen the ability of developing countries, including least developed countries (LDCs), to continue engaging in and benefiting from e-commerce and the digital economy, to build more resilient and inclusive societies in a dramatically different post-COVID-19 environment.
The event is free of charge and open to all but participants must register in advance. Click here to register and find more information.
