The African Development Bank (AfDB) has completed the network of Open Data
Platforms in all 54 African countries.
The Open Data Platform is part of the AfDB’s “Africa Information Highway”
initiative aimed at improving data collection, management, and
dissemination in Africa. It will allow open access to the data needed for
managing and monitoring development results in African countries, including
tracking progress on the MDGs. The Open Data Platform is a direct response
to a number of important global and regional initiatives to scale up the
availability of quality data on Africa and so foster evidence-based
decision-making, public accountability, and good governance.
