Meet you at #OGP15

October 27, 2015

This week, DG is participating in the Open Government Partnership’s 2015 Global Summit in Mexico City. A triennial gathering of governments, civil society, and private businesses, the event offers a space for leaders in open government to share lessons learned and discuss new ways to advance the global transparency agenda.

On Thursday, we’ll lead a hands-on workshop on how to find, analyze, and apply aid data. By providing an overview of how to find aid information – from Aid Management Platform country systems and the IATI datastore – as well as some simple ways to analyze this information in Excel, we hope to build confidence among participants in finding and using open data. As mentioned before, key to making open data sustainable and impactful is ensuring it’s actually usable, useful, and used by key audiences – government decisionmakers in particular.

With over 1500 participants expected – and an explicit focus on the role of open government in SDG success – we’re looking forward to valuable conversations and collaborations in Mexico City this week and beyond.
