The Kyrgyz Open Data Days will be held on November 18-19, 2014 in Bishkek. The event is organized jointly by the World Bank and UNDP following the official requests from the Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic and Chair of the State Registration Service to help launch the Open Data initiative.
Other partners of the event include Open Data Institute, Open Knowledge Foundation, Soros Foundation and GovLab@NYU.
Open Data Days will include a series of roundtables for public officials, civil society, software developers, and private sector in Kyrgyzstan.
A two-day-long Open Data Days will comprise workshops and roundtable meetings and will be delivered to increase awareness of the potential of Open Data to boost economic and social prosperity. Round table sessions will focus on translating international experience, insights, and examples to the Kyrgyz context, so possible actions become apparent to the participants from the government, civil society and private sector.
Open Data – making relevant data available to others to use freely – would be a powerful tool to energize and extend some of the key policies for the transformation of the Kyrgyz Republic, building upon the existing initiatives related to open government, investment climate and public sector reform.
