    • Building  Demand-­‐driven  & Ci2zen-­‐focused  Open  Data   Ecosystems   Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Thursday, August 29, 13
    • “We  are  not  ge+ng  data  from  organiza1ons   because  they  claim  to  own  it,  even  those  that   have  collected  the  data  using  taxpayers’   money.  We  are  working  on  a  Cabinet  memo   that  would  legally  oblige  these  ministries  and   government  agencies  to  provide  data” -­‐  Dr.  Bitange  Ndemo (Former)  Permanent  Secretary   Ministry  of  Informa1on  and  Communica1ons Thursday, August 29, 13
    • http://Code-Africa.org civ·ic /ˈsivik/ Adjective 1. Of or relating to a city or town, esp. its administration; municipal. 2. Of or relating to the duties or activities of people in relation to their town, city, or local area. We  are  guided  by  the  2nd  defini1on. We  are  a  grassroots-­‐driven  and  demand-­‐focused   movement  that  seeks  to  build  ac2ve  ci2zenry  by   strengthening  civic  watchdogs  and  crea1ng  new   avenues  for  civic  engagement  to  help  shape  bePer   public  governance  &  public  services. Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Ci2zen  focused:   We  empower  mass  mobilisa2on  agents,  such  as   ci2zen  movements  and  the  media,  to  give   ordinary  ci1zens  access  to  data,  tools,  and  skills   for  real  civic  engagement. Image  ©  hPp://www.flickr.com/photos/microlinks/ Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Demand  driven:   Open  data  needs  to  be  more  than  just  rhetoric.  It  needs  to  answer   the  real-­‐world  challenges  facing  ci1zens.  And,  it  needs  to  be   underpinned  by  a  data  economy. Image  ©  hPp://www.flickr.com/photos/albanyassociates/ Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Outcomes  based:   We  aim  for  'outcomes'  not  just  'outputs'.  Our   metric  for  success  is  meaningful  impact,  that   creates  las2ng  change  through  ci1zen  agency.  We   also  aim  for  scalability  and/or  replica2on  in  all   our  ini1a1ves.

    • Pipeline  strategy:   To  build  a  self-­‐sustaining   ecosystem,  you  need   cataly2c  mechanisms  that   support  the  germina2on   and  growth  of  open  data   champions.   Our  'pipeline'  strategy   uses  a  modular  approach   to  provide  incremental   access  to  resources,  skills,   support  systems,  and   various  accelera2on   mechanisms. Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 1  -­‐  Partnerships:   We're  building  a  demand-­‐driven  eco-­‐system  of  data  creators  +  curators  and  data   analysts  +  narrators,  partnered  with  grassroots  ci1zen  movements. Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 2  -­‐  Data  Literacy  Skills:   We  host  data  literacy  bootcamps  and   masterclasses,  develop  course  materials,   and  convene  strategic  policy  roundtables  +   cataly1c  hackdays  across  Africa  to  develop   data  skills  &  knowledge. http://DataBootcamp.org Nairobi  Data  Bootcamp  2012 Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Seeding  Skills  Across  the  Con2nent   Ghana TanzaniaGhana South Africa Tanzania Malawi Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 3  -­‐  Building  Community We're  crea1ng  a  diverse  community  of   civic  hackers,  data  ac1vists  and  data   narrators  through  a  pan-­‐African  network   of  Hacks/Hackers  chapters,  ci1zen  tech   desks  in  incubators,  and  'kickstarter'   Code  for  Democracy  co-­‐crea1on  events. Hacks/Hackers Code4Democracy Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 4  -­‐  Building  the  Backbone: Much  like  the  railways  powered  industrialisa1on,  Africa   needs  open  data  infrastructure,  from  data  and  code   repositories,  to  an  AfricanCommons  resource  hub.  We've   adopted  a  modular,  community-­‐centric  approach. http://OpenAfrica.net OpenAfrica.net - the continent's largest volunteer-run open data respository Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Libera2ng  Data:   By  digi2zing  documents  and  knowledge  within   media,  academia,  and  civil  society,  we're   turning  'deadwood'  archives  into  new  digital   'structured  data'  resources,  with  open  APIs  to   allow  for  3rd  party  re-­‐use. http://OpenDuka.org OpenDuka + AfricaConnected - turning parliamentary, newsroom & university archives into machine readable data Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 5  -­‐  Fellowship  Programs:   Na1onal-­‐level  fellowship  programs  that  embed   technologists  into  'mass  mobilisa1on'   organisa1ons,  to  catalyze  change  &  build   proof-­‐of-­‐concept  products  or  services.   http://Code4Kenya.org Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 6  -­‐  Ci2zen  Tech  Labs: Core  teams  of  coders  in  jAccelerators,  with   addi1onal  mentorships  +  workspace  for   data  start-­‐ups  and  ci1zen-­‐driven  projects  in   tech  incubators  across  Africa. Thursday, August 29, 13
    • 7  -­‐  Funding  to  Scale: A  venture  funding  pipeline,  offering  angel  &   early-­‐stage  impact  investment,  to  ini1a1ves  that   have  achieved  meaningful  trac1on,  and  that  offer   scalability,  sustainability  and  replicability. http://AfricanNewsChallenge.org Thursday, August 29, 13
    • What's   Next?   Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Expanding   the   Footprint:   Code  for  Kenya   deploys  its  2nd   cohort  of   fellows,  while   pilot  teams   launch  in  three   other  'hub'   countries. Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Knowledge  Sharing: Share  our  successes  &   mistakes  with  the  world Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Bolivia Nepal Moldova Jordan Thursday, August 29, 13
    • Global  Commons:   Instead  of  constantly  reinven1ng  the   wheel,  we're  focusing  on  pooling   resources  to  build  common  solu1ons.   OpenAfrica.net  has  already  inspired  a   clone  in  La2n  America,  and  we  are   collabora1ng  with  Code  for  Europe  to   build  OpenCivic  as  a  common  resource   and  toolset.
