Towards Open Development Data - white paper published

on June 26th, 2012 at 2:20:00 PM


In this white paper, we explore the potential of open development data as an instrument to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and legitimacy of NGO’s development processes. Open development data is part of the transition towards a more open, information-driven and networked development sector, also termed Open Development.

Open development data is hailed as a strong instrument for NGOs to make their work more transparent and be more accountable towards their stakeholders. This is expected to have a positive effect on the legitimacy question that is currently posed on the sector.

Under the umbrella of Open for Change, TNO and Partos have joined forces to undertake a research project on the effects of open data for the development sector. Based on the evidence found, we will develop a vision on the effective and safe implementation of open data in the development sector. In a next phase we plan to develop a strategy and implementation roadmap. We invite you, as a stakeholder in the sector, to participate in this action an contribute to the development of the vision.
