DIAL aims to support the D4D ecosystem by providing resources, such as this paper, that can help the various D4D actors (including governments, private sector firms, NGOs, and implementing partners) to better navigate the legal and regulatory environment around digital development and responsible data use. This paper is an overview of data protection and privacy regulations from six jurisdictions, which can serve as a resource for regulators who are considering updates to their own data protection and privacy laws and as an illustration of the complexity in this fast-moving area.
