The OD4D network

OD4D is a global network of leading organizations that are creating locally-driven and sustainable open data ecosystems around the world. The OD4D 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.

The OD4D program is hosted by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and and it is co-funded with the World Bank, United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) and Global Affairs Canada (GAC).
