The following guest post is from David Pidsley who is a member of the Open Knowledge Foundation’s Working Group on Open Knowledge in Development.
Open Data for Development Camp (ODDC) on 12th and 13th May 2011 in Amsterdam focuses on how developers, practitioners and policy makers can harness open international development data more effectively.
During the event we will be having an online Linking Development Data Workshop. The workshop format will be two days of intense online collaboration focused on ways of Linking Development Data.
The outcomes we are working towards are to empower recipients of aid, lead on transparency agenda, help reduce ineffective spending, increase visibility of social impact and to link aid spending to results.
