Interoperability Working Group

Whole-of-government approaches are a requirement for citizen and data-driven policy. Interoperability plays a crucial role in enabling administrations to overcome siloed practices towards coordinated, connected, and responsive public sectors capable of better responding to the increasing demands of our economies and societies.

The Interoperability Working Group has advised and provided inputs on the Interoperability How-To Note produced by the World Bank GovTech Team.  The working group is now focused on organizing knowledge sharing sessions on key domains such as whole-of-government approaches, policy levers or data skills and culture.

The Interoperability Working Group is chaired jointly by Indonesia and Portugal, with the secretariat and administrative assistance of the GovTech Global Team. There are 41 member governments, private sector organizations, think tanks and international organizations: Indonesia (co-chair), Portugal (co-chair), Astana Civil Service Hub, Argentina, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Canada, Citibeats, Denmark, Digital Economist, eGov Foundation, EU-DIGIT, Globant, Gobe, GovTech Sweden, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Korea (MOIS), Korea (NIA), Lisbon Council, Mastercard, Morocco, Mozambique (INTIC), Mozambique (INAGE), New Zealand, Nortal, Open Data Charter, Open Group, Public Digital, Reason, Saudi Arabia, SICPA, Timor-Leste, Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, United Kingdom and UNU-eGOV.
