Africa Open Data Network is a community of Africans, and friends of Africa, who believe in the continent’s development agenda and how open data can help make it a reality.
- Mobilising for advocacy on a common agenda informed by Africa’s Agenda 2063 and other normative continental frameworks
- A platform for shared learning and peer networking
- Sharing information on resources, events and news on open data in Africa
- Catalysing research on what works, what doesn’t and what’s next in open data in Africa.
- Facilitating technical assistance to governments for successful open data initiatives in Africa.
All this so that we all do a better job at ending poverty, ending hunger, reducing inequality and delivering inclusive prosperity for all.
