Como seu evento celebrou os Dados Abertos?

Since the celebration of Open Data Day started in the beginning of the week, the last day of celebrating Open Data Day was a special session about case study exchange and group work on using data for solving public issues.

The data collaboratives practices had enabled participants from different background within Government institutions and journalists to understand the value of data even those they have considered "meaningless" in the beginning. Together, we were able to create a fictional but potential "SMS Disease Surveillance" system that can be used to monitor Covid19 outbreak in Madagascar if some data from private company would be available.

The possibility of developing a mobile app for better Covid-19 logistic management was also presented after group discussion.

Lições aprendidas no evento:

We learned that partnerships with government and the private sector can be useful but need some incentive measures (fiscal, for example) from local authorities to publish data. The level of data institutional response that should exist in a country requires more than data analytic skills.

Porque você ama o Dia dos Dados Abertos?

It's a valuable opportunity to exchange the importance of open data for development.
