Open data has been prominently discussed in major global commitments this past year. From the the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, COPS 21 and Anti-Corruption Summit, data has been central to the political debate. However, is this really making a positive change in people’s lives on the ground? The panel will feature high-level female leaders from open data field to reflect on the use of open data to achieve sustainable development around the world. They will also reflect on the role of the international roadmap put in motion in the last conference and how the discussions at IODC 2016 can accelerate greater local impact.
