What do we want?
The Road to 2015 campaign is about harnessing the power of open data for sustainable development.
At a major aid effectiveness conference in Korea in 2011, donors committed to fully publish their aid to a timely and comparable standard – the International Aid Transparency Initiative – by the end of 2015.
With many donors off-track, the clock is ticking on that promise.
This is also the year in which we decide upon the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The new agenda will be important for setting targets on sustainable development in the context of poverty eradication, and we need to make sure that transparency and open data remain an integral part of these discussions.
We are calling for:
- All donors who have committed to publishing aid data to deliver on that promise.
- Transparency and open data to feature as an integral component of the Post-2015 landscape.
This is a crucial point in the push for open data for sustainable development. The Road to 2015 must be paved with open data, not just good intentions.
