12:00 - 13:20
Room 214, Shaw Centre
This session offers participants a hands-on opportunity to consider next-generation open data interventions with emphasis on open government and the sustainable development goals.
In the last decade open data has been used to address many open government and development challenges, yet there is a widely perceived impact gap, and many projects still focus on portals rather than problem solving. Using a design canvas, this session help participants plan politically-aware, strategic open data projects, recasting the idea of OGP open data commitments are problem, rather than portal, specific.
The session will share practical learning from the State of Open Data book: a collaborative review by over 60 authors look at 16 sectors, 7 regions, 7 core issues, and 7 stakeholder groups to reflect on what works for open data and how to ensure measurable impact. The book, supported by the Open Data for Development network, will launch during OGP Week.
