The Open Data Charter is a collaboration between governments and organizations working to open up data based on a shared set of Principles. With 73 government adopters and 53 organizations endorsers, our goal is to embed open data as a central ingredient to achieving better solutions to the most pressing policy challenges of our time.

Open Government Partnership logo

In 2011, government leaders and civil society advocates came together to create a unique partnership—one that combines these powerful forces to promote accountable, responsive and inclusive governance.

Seventy-eight countries and a growing number of local governments—representing more than two billion people—along with thousands of civil society organizations are members of the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

Language of the event: 

Please note that this year’s World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty 2020 has been canceled due to the current global health emergency.  We decided to turn our previously scheduled in person workshop "Putting Data into Action: Shaping an Open Up Guide on Land Governance," organized in collaboration with the Open Data Charter and the Open Government Partnership, into an online virtual meeting.  

Data use across the land sector remains limited by a lack of openness, limited clarity about responsible data sharing, and disconnected data silos, serving particular communities and ignoring the needs of others. 

Join Land Portal, Open Data Charter and the Open Government Partnership research team for a virtual meeting to shape the design of a new resource designed to transform land information ecosystems, so that diverse datasets can be made accessible to meet a much wider range of needs.

The Open Up Guide on Land Governance will join a series of existing Open Up guides from the Open Data Charter. Guides help governments, civil society and other stakeholders work together to make data open and usable, setting priorities, identifying the standards to use, and linking data with action.

In this online meeting, set to take place on March 16th from 9am - 11am EST (2pm - 4pm CET) we will bring together stakeholders interested in, and using, data on land and land governance in different ways. Through a series of facilitated sessions, we will discuss different use cases for land data, the key datasets that could or should be provided, and the commitments different stakeholders need to make in order to open up.

This builds the recent Land Portal online dialogue on open data in the fight against land corruption, and the State of Open Data chapter on Land Ownership data.
