Data for Development Asia

In 2018, OD4D’s Open Data in Asia hub was launched to improve the availability and impact of open data in Southeast Asia through research and strategic coordination of existing as well as new regional collaboration initiatives. The hub aims to build a stronger community of practice in Southeast Asia comprised of open data technologists, civil society, government officials, donors, and researchers. By collaborating more effectively, OD4D, Open Development Mekong, partners in Malaysia and India, and a community of open data advocates will increase the quality, impact, and sustainability of initiatives in the region, establishing links with regional and global networks and building on the vision outlined in the Open Data in Asia 2020 report.
