The Workshop on Action Planning for Open Government Data (OGD) for Sustainable Development in Latin America was co-organized by the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and the Economic and Social Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

The Workshop promoted an exchange of information on OGD National Strategies and National Action Plans in support of access to information for sustainable development. Through sharing experiences and lessons learned by selected countries in the region, participants enhanced their capacities of developing an OGD Action Plan including the building blocks required for successful OGD implementation. The Workshop also offered an opportunity to review OGD strategies and action plans in collaboration with regional peers and experts.

This event was organised as part of the project on “Strengthening of Capacities of Developing Countries to Provide Access to Information for Sustainable Development through Open Government Data (OGD)”. The overall objective of the project is to demonstrate the potential and benefits of using Open Government Data (OGD) in advancing transparency, accountability and sustainable development in selected countries of Latin America and East Asia regions.

The project aims at developing a strategy for creating and utilising the open data, particularly in thematic areas relevant to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is also assisting selected countries with the development of a policy framework and technical infrastructure for implementation of OGD initiatives.
