The OD4D network

The OD4D program is managed by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and it is a donor partnership with the World Bank, United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) and Global Affairs Canada (GAC).

OD4D supports a global network of leading organizations that are creating locally-driven and sustainable open data ecosystems in in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia and East Europe. This network builds knowledge and provides support to governments and policy-makers in key issues such as policies, standards, innovation, and skills development.

OD4D focuses on building up the supply of quality open data, and also on improving the use of that data by leaders in government, civil society, the media, and business so that it furthers public interest and improves people’s lives.
