  1. Lack of Comprehensive Legal Framework in data governance.
  2. We don’t have a specific body or Regulator for data governance.
  3. There is a lot of practice of Data transfer outside the Jurisdiction.
  4. Limited Technology, Knowledge and Capacity required in Data Governance across sectors.
  5. Very limited citizen knowledge on the rights and risks of Data Governance.
  6. Very limited interest of key players in the important agenda such as the Media Stakeholders, Private and Public Sectors, the Civil Society and others.
  7. A limited number of CSOs working in the thematic area and we have key stakeholders not aware of what, how and why we need to localize Data Protection and Privacy.
