3 World Bank Open Data Platform The World Bank's Open Data Initiative launched in April, 2010, providing free, open and easy access to development data, and challenging the global community to use the data to create new solutions to address poverty.Today, the World Bank's Open Data Catalog includes over 8,000 development indicators, of which 1,400 for 252 countries and 36 aggregate groupings, going back over 50 years, in 5 languages, and is continuously expanding.

7 Economic Value of Open Data In the EU, open data increases business activity by up to €40 Billion/year, and provides direct and indirect benefits up to €200 Billion/year (1.7% of EU GDP).Open Weather Data in the US has created 400 companies employing 4,000 people.A Spanish study found an increase of about €600m of business from open data with the creation of over 5000 jobs.An Australian study found a return on investment of 500% from Open Data.Mapping and transport data in particular have given rise to new industries, including a suite of global positioning system products, and ‘mashups’ that combine mapping data with public transportation or traffic data.Slide credit: Andrew Stott

9 Open Government Data Toolkit The Toolkit is designed to help governments plan and implement an open government data program, while avoiding common pitfalls.
10 Open Data Readiness Assessment The ODRA is a tool designed to build a plan of action for Open Data, custom-tailored to a country, subnational government, city or sectorIt is a set of questions on 8 subjects that we consider necessary for a successful Open Data InitiativeThe output is an action plan and a report that provides recommendations for the particular clientIt is not a ranking exercise.

12 Antigua ODRA Inputs US$ 75K of grant funding World Bank ODRA team (4), Counterpart team (5), regional partner team (4) with expertise in Open Data, eGovernment, Legal, Statistics, IT, Database management, local contextOne month intensive preparation time prior to visit: weekly coordination conference calls, VCs, extensive communication

14 Antigua ODRA Findings Institutional recommendations Data release recommendationsPolitical case for Open Data needs to be developed and agreed by CabinetA clear political leader needs to be empowered on behalf of governmentPolicies, licensing, pricing need to be developedStaged release of data, starting with quick wins and leveraging existing projectsPotential data users need to be engaged in dialogue on what data they wantLeverage regional initiativesStage 1: Quick win data sets include weather, education data needing minimal reformattingStage 2: Data requiring additional work to mash up with maps include disaster management, business identifiers (Inland Revenue), registers of professionals (doctors, lawyers, vets, architects) and property prices.Stage 3: Data requiring some work for publication include government budget and spending data, tourism data, census data.Stage 4: Data requiring policy work prior to publication include land registration and government procurement data.Stage 5: Data requiring digitization include Company Register, Agriculture, and Health.

16 “Good News on the Information Front” ANTIGUA“We could not be happier as we witness what appears to be a serious attempt to bring Antigua & Barbuda fully into the information age. A highly important plan to make information available to the public, at little or no direct cost, has been in the news recently.The plan is for an “Open Data” information system to be established so that the public can get access to non-sensitive information, which the government has at its disposal. This is one initiative involving the government of Antigua & Barbuda that seems to have an excellent chance of successful implementation. More importantly, it could be the catalyst for a whole new wave of entrepreneurship among our people.”“Good News on the Information Front”Editorial June 26th, 2013
