For Open Data Day 2021 on Saturday 6th March, the Open Knowledge Foundation is offering support and funding for in-person and online events anywhere in the world via our mini-grant scheme.
Today we are pleased to announce an additional partner for the Open Data Day 2021 mini-grant scheme: the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) through the GFDRR Labs and its Open Data for Resilience Initiative (OpenDRI).
GFDRR will be supporting mini-grants in the Environmental Data track, with a particular focus on ‘data for resilience’.
If you need inspiration for your event using data for resilience, some useful resources to check out include: GFDRR Labs, OpenDRI, Open Cities Project, ThinkHazard, Open Data for Resilience Index and the Risk Data Library.
We are extremely grateful to GFDRR and all our partners who have provided funding for this year’s mini-grant scheme. These include Microsoft, UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, Mapbox, Latin American Open Data Initiative (ILDA), Open Contracting Partnership and Datopian.
