As the open data movement gains traction, governments and donors are increasingly providing more and better data about development assistance. On Friday, November 4th AidData, Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law, and the World Bank Institute co-hosted a conference Putting aid data to work: using better information to get better results.
The conference explored how open data and aid transparency can be used to:
- Visualize and combine aid data with other kinds of development data,
- Track climate change finance and coordinate climate projects with work in other sectors, and
- Improve the impact of development aid through feedback loops and social monitoring.
