Recently, the IPD’s Open Aid Team conducted a review of the research provided by Open Data for Developing Countries: Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Developing Countries. Our research examines the types of studies undertaken and limitations and findings associated. Based on these findings, we highlight the gaps in the current research and offer recommendations for the necessary innovative leaps in evaluation and research.
Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in the Developing Countries is a multi-country, multi-year study led by the World Wide Web Foundation to understand how data is being put to use in different countries and contexts across the developing world. According to the Open Data Network website, “these case studies examine initiatives, the governance challenges they propose to address, and emerging outcomes and impacts from the application of open data in these contexts. The project is also developing cross-cutting data collection instruments and analysis approaches to help explain if and how open data is bringing change to developing countries.” Together, these studies will help improve developmental outcomes of open data initiatives.
