Over the last few years, an enormous amount of development data has begun to flow. Several different efforts have begun to show open development flows from and to different countries. However, significant challenges remain, including improving the quality of existing data, making the data more accessible and connecting official and grassroots data together.

This session will include lightning talks showing five new platforms showing development data (most of which are open source and use open data), and then focus on discussing how to confront challenges based on experience of designing the existing platforms and using the data. The participants will be varied, including from Afghanistan, Nepal and the U.S.

This session was co-created by the Open Development Open Knowledge Working Group. This session remains editorially independent as it was put together in consultation with the Programme Team following the same guidelines as for other sessions at the festival.
