Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
This piece explores how government hosting of citizen‑generated data sets (CGD) can meet the needs of both governments and civil society, and open up opportunities for increased collaboration between government and civil society on collecting and sharing data, and using data to monitor and enhance progress on sustainable development. The piece begins by presenting the idea of government hosting for citizen-generated data sets, inspired by a recent conversation with the Innovation Lab in Buenos Aires. The following section discusses incentives, obstacles and benefits of this approach within the context of open data initiatives and development monitoring. The third section considers a model for this type of collaboration and suggests how it might be considered in countries with active monitoring and accountability efforts. The final section section proposes how additional research or practical efforts might help to develop this idea further, within the context of the “data revolution for sustainable development”.
