Coordinating resilient cities discussion paper (as first step of cities sector package and cities challenge)
The objective of this work is to coordinate a discussion paper and consultation process on the opportunities and challenges of open data to improve resilience in cities worldwide. This ground-breaking research may pave the way for informing city innovation challenges and developing a sector data package, in support of the Open Data Charter.
The researcher will support a team at the ODI, who will provide guidance and overall editorial oversight, on behalf of the OD4D.
The purpose of the report is to outline opportunities, applications and recommendations for open data to improve city resilience – in particular to address development and sustainability issues.
The Open Data Leaders Network (ODLN) programme calls for exceptional global leaders of open data initiatives worldwide, to take part in its 6-month programme in 2016-17
The ODLN is a unique global network of 30 open data leaders. Through tested peer-to-peer methodology, the programme aims to provide the necessary knowledge and tools for effective open data leadership, and to give leaders access to a network of outstanding peers to share ideas and support over time.
The ODI’s Open Data Leaders Network grants programme will offer up to £6,500 each to support, develop or amplify three government-led open data projects that create rapid impact.
