Description

Open Data in Europe and Central Asia (ODECA) is a platform to support government representatives, civil society activists, tech activists and citizens that care about and work with open data.

The network covers 18 countries in the region and aims to stimulate innovation, knowledge sharing and learning among practitioners and aficionados of open data regionally and globally.

The goal is to use the potential of open data to transform societies by empowering citizens and supporting governments to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While the network is still exploring all the ways that data will contribute to the SDGs, it is undeniable that it will play an important role in reaching and measuring them.

The network brings in the knowledge and experience of global and regional leaders in open data.
