Event Details

Are you interested in international development? Have questions about open financial data? Have ideas on how to better use development data?

Please join World Bank Finances, the Open Aid Register, Development Gateway, Open Corporates, AidInfo, Connect4Climate, and the International Center for Journalists for an afternoon of ideation, inspiration, and learning to help unleash the untapped potential of open financial/spending data for development impact!

Open financial data embodies the intersection of many global trends- including greater demand for transparency, accountability, and citizen engagement. The availability of data and rapid evolution of new technologies to support these trends provides an opportunity to make significant progress towards greater innovation and large scale public participation in development processes. Through the Development Data Challenge (DDC) ideation event on June 1, we are seeking to begin sourcing solutions through a collaborative brainstorming process involving civil society, open data practitioners & enthusiasts, data owners, and technologists.

Ideation themes/categories to include*:

  • Aid Effectiveness
  • Assurance & Anti-Corruption
  • Citizen Engagement/Community
  • Big Data
  • Procurement/Contracts
  • Mobile & Web Applications
  • Data Journalism
  • Design/Data Visualization

*Selected ideas to be presented to Random Hacks of Kindness for development on June 2-3, 2012. Ideas to be selected on the basis of creativity, innovation, potential impact, collaboration, feasibility/implementation plan.

Join us to learn more about open financial data and its current uses, brainstorm with others on important development issues, and potentially be a part of a development solution! Refreshments, snacks, and light reception to be provided.
