Project Description
According to bank documents, the project is a direct result of the Open Data Readiness Assessment (ODRA) conducted in the country in November 2014 to March 2015. As part of the assessment, World Bank and UNDP experts uncovered a potential for enhancing outcomes and citizen engagement mechanisms of Bank-financed sector operations in the country through opening up relevant datasets in healthcare, rural development, emergency services, and other areas. This project will facilitate opening of the necessary data in these areas. An open data program for the Kyrgyz Republic also serves as foundational policy, human capital and technology infrastructure for the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Open and machine readable data will ensure not only advanced statistical capabilities, but the ability to integrate this data into the global "data revolution" ecosystem enabling accurate and up to date reporting, granular analysis, and smarter development investments.
