le 06/11/2019

« Where are the opportunities to take forward an ambitious transparency, anti-corruption and open data agenda in the land sector? »

Co-hosted by GIZ, the Land Portal Foundation, Omidyar Network, Open Data Charter and Open Data for Development (OD4D) network, the seminare will explore routes to realize the potential of open data as a tool for anti-corruption in the land sector.

This webinar will bring together donors and intermediary organisations to explore questions including:

  • Are new initiatives needed to secure a step change in how open data is used for land governance?
  • How can open data principles be embedded within wider land sector programs and anti-corruption efforts?
  • Where are the priority areas for open data investment in the land sector?
  • What can we learn from how other sectors have embedded open data approaches?

Our panel brings together funders, policy-makers, anti-corruption and open data experts.
