Data Standards - Design & Adoption

It takes a lot for open data to contribute to real impact: from political will to an operational website, and everything in-between. Standards help to make sure that open data is useful, by codifying learning and encouraging a common data language between everyone involved.

This session will bring together civil society, developers and open data advocates to explore data standards design and adoption. It will start with brief talks to share learning and provoke discussion, then move tofacilitated conversation to explore topics, including: 
- Why are standards important? And who are they important to? Explore standards as tools for collaboration, and hear from the global south about the impact that open data and open standards have on citizens’ lives
- Learning from the technology sector; Silicon Valley starts with an MVP - what can open data learn from this?
- Tensions between what’s easy and what’s important; what are the trade-offs? How do you resolve them? 
- Our stories - what have we done, what have we learned?
