Promoting OGD usage in Moldova

One of the difficulties in launching open government data initiatives may lie in low public interest. Moldova is facing just such a problem. Its citizens are not demanding disclosure of government data, in contrast with most other countries where government data was released under strong public pressure. Officials in Moldova supporting an open data initiative have held events to generate interest and awareness .around the issue, in addition to training sessions on data journalism and app development using open data.

According to these officials, a Moldova-based NGO is working on a project called Budget Stories that would essentially release budgetary information in the form of infographics, creating visual stories behind the facts. In a separate initiative, a group of students in Moldova is combining different cartographic and geographic data to produce maps that will assist the government visualising certain domestic challenges.
