The relevance of supporting the community is to promote reflections on social, political and economic problems in which data plays a relevant role.
ILDA has developed a process to monitor this agenda at the regional level. In particular, ILDA has acted as a node of the Open Data for Development (OD4D) network in Latin America in terms of research, assisted in the development of Abrelatam – ConDatos and collaborated with various regional networks such as the Gealc Network and the Inter-American Network on Government Procurement (INGP). Multiple partners look to ILDA as a connector for the growth of the agenda.
ILDA seeks to consolidate its role and formalize it in the Abrelatam – ConDatos forums, to act as a benchmark for the OD4D network in the region, bringing together research, governments and civil society in the most important discussions, as well as strengthening the expansion of the community and the inclusion of new voices and sectors. In particular, we will seek to contribute to greater diversity in these events, greater interaction between government and society, and to assist the host countries.
