Main Session - Scaling Up and Deepening Open Data's Transformative Impact in Open Government

The purpose of the session is to bring together key sector leaders to showcase examples of how open data is deepening the impact of their work (e.g., natural resources governance through environmental data disclosure, service delivery in health and education, fiscal transparency through open budget data, access to information through proactive disclosure, anti-corruption through open contracting data) and highlight opportunities presented by Open Government Partnership (OGP) to scale up and deepen those efforts.

Through a facilitated roundtable discussion, we hope to:

  1. Establish how open data is the connector and key driver of impact across sectors (health, education, fiscal transparency, access to information, natural resources, and anti-corruption, open contracting, etc.).

  2. Showcase with real examples how open data is being used in OGP countries to deepen the impact of open government reforms at the sector level.

  3. Unpack the theory of change at work and draw conclusions on what’s working, what’s not working, and why and how future interventions can be successful.

  4. Seek ideas on how OGP can scale up and deepen the impact of open government reforms using open data approaches so that it benefits citizens beyond intermediary data users.

By demonstrating real world cases of deployment of open data in OGP countries, we hope participants will develop a better understanding of how OGP can be leveraged for implementing open data interventions across different sectors. Another key outcome is to highlight the role of experts from OGP Working Groups and partners as in leading sectoral open data engagement.

Main Session - Open Data and Platforms

The open data community has made significant progress in developing platforms to make open data more available and accessible. Many solutions are now available either as open source, subscription (e.g., Software As a Service) or traditionally licensed products. As a result, there are many opportunities and factors for data providers, particularly government ministries, to consider in their decision making and selection criteria. This session will provide an overview of the current state of open data publishing platforms. Representatives of several leading data platforms will give “lightning talks” on the demands and trends they’re seeing and what they think might be in store for the future. There will also be a “town hall” style discussion for audience members to share the challenges they are experiencing and get the views of the panel.

Regional Talk - East Europe

This session will explore whether open data is strengthening social cohesion in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Disillusionment with the results of transition in the region has resulted in an overall erosion of public trust. However, open data, and in particular open government data, is being used as a transformative tool in the relationship between citizens and government. This panel will discuss to what extent have such developments taken place in the region and what are some of the other key changes that the open data agenda has brought in, as well as where does the diverse group of experts and implementers see the value in working on open data.

How successful have such collaborations been in countries otherwise wrought with distrust? And how can the trust generated be sustained over long periods? Are new communities created around open data, resulting in a new interaction? What incentives can spur a stronger and more ingrained movement locally?


By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Identify the latest thinking and practises of collaborative work between governments and civil society.

  • Gain practical insight into best practises and challenges of current initiatives.

  • Present the web-platform for data journalism in English and Russian, tailored to academic staff.

  • Understand how civil society and government work together to create  innovative solutions.

The panel is designed to discuss not just the open data usage in health but also the reasons why its implementation hasn’t increased as much as in other sectors. A selected group of professionals coming from several places in the world (Colombia, Spain, UK) with a highlighted background in health management and technology will maintain a debate about this topic. For this event, an expert audience has been invited in order to keep a fluent conversation with the panelists. Therefore we expect a rich interchange of knowledge among all of us.

Main Session - Breaking the Power of Closed

The most important revelations about matters that affect our lives in recent years have happened due to people who had the chance to reveal wrongdoing did so.

Snowden’s Global Surveillance revelations, Wikileaks’ United States diplomatic cables leak and, most recently, ICIJ’s Panama Papers have been made possible thanks to people risking their lives to let the public know and an increasing group of investigative and data journalists translating dry and boring data and information into stories the public can more easily understand.

The Panama Papers leak alone, allegedly largest in history, exposed 11.5 million financial and legal records, way more than the great majority of open data portals combined.

In these scenarios where secrecy is the rule, can we really expect openness to have an impact? When? How?

If so, what is the kind of information and data we should really fight for to make open?

This session will bring panelists who have worked in some of the most known leaks as well as a whistleblower who made one possible himself (Swiss leaks) to discuss how openness can break the power of closed… if at all...

Counted and included: how do we close the gender gap in open data?

SDG 5 sets lofty targets for gender equality, and open data has the potential to be a critical tool in delivering a more just and equal world for women. But like any technology, whether it lives up to that promise will be influenced by who designs it - and with which ends in mind. While there are many facets of diversity worthy of discussion, on this panel we will focus on gender inclusivity.

The panelists will share their experiences on finding accurate gender data, conceiving open data projects with women as creators and end-users in mind, and promoting the participation of more women in the open data field.
