Maarten Brouwer
Ministry of Foreign Affairs, DGIS

Open data and transparency are elements of a larger paradigm shift. It is not so much about accountability after implementing policies, it offers new opportunities for cooperation and public participation in making choices and developing policies.

Maarten Brouwer is Ambassador for Development Cooperation at Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, and will reflect on two days of Open Data for Development Camp.
