Open Data in the Global South

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The objective of the session is to reflect on the nature, type, and trajectory of networking activities and projects around open data across the Global South - to discuss the lessons that can be learned from experiences to date and how best to use these as a foundational basis of charting future directions in terms of sustainability and greater coordination. Five speakers from across Asia, Africa, and Latin America, will briefly share their experiences in building open data ecosystems within countries and regions, and participants will participate in small group discussions around unpacking the identified lessons-learned.
