The Open Data Leaders Network connects and supports a peer network of data pioneers in governments from all around the world. The network is convened and organised by the ODI, and funded by the International Development Research Centre as part of the Open Data for Development (OD4D) programmeIn this podcast, Alex Leon looks at the African Open Data Leaders Network, a regional variation of the programme that took place this year in Accra, Ghana. We hear from Fiona Smith about the methodology behind the programme, and from various open data leaders on the continent about their experience, as well as the main obstacles they face in advocating for open data in the region.
