What is the state of Open Data activities globally? Who is working on what and where? Where are opportunities to be fostered in the developing world?
The Open Data Partnership for Development is a partnership between The World Bank, Open Data Institute (ODI) and Open Knowledge Foundation. Initial funding of $1.25 million in the first year comes from The World Bank’s Development Grant Facility. We are actively seeking additional partners to join our efforts.
Update: The Open Data Partnership for Development Scoping Terms of Reference deadline has been changed to January 13, 2014.
Submit your Scoping Proposal today!
The ODP4D team seeks candidates to conduct a Scoping Terms of Reference. Help us get a current state Open Data Activity snapshot to guide our decisions for the Open Data Partnership for Development programmes. Proposals for a Scoping Analysis will address two objectives:
(i) identify potential funders and the key delivery partners in the Open Data ecosystem, and
(ii) map the existing efforts to support open data in developing countries and their status.
The Scoping Terms of Reference (tender) is open from today until January 14, 2014 17:00 GMT:
In the meantime, the ODP4D team is preparing training programmes for governments, civil society organizations and partners. This scoping exercise will inform all the programme outputs. We can’t wait to get started! Please contact us for more details.
