Date and Time: January 28th from 3:00-4:30 PM CET (9:00-10:30 ET)
Opening up land-related administrative data, combining it with data from other sources and processing and making this data available as easily accessible information for women and men equally could be a means to counteracting land corruption in land management, land administration and land allocation. But does open data and enhanced data transparency indeed help to counteract land corruption?
In order to answer this question, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with the support of the German Federal Government, commissioned the study The Role of Open Data in Fighting Land Corruption: Evidence, Opportunities and Challenges, which will be published in January 2021. Initial findings of this study suggest that the current data revolution and open data can play an important role in realizing sustainable land governance.
The GIZ and the Land Portal Foundation are pleased to invite you to this webinar, which will take place on January 28th from 3:00-4:30 PM CET (9:00-10:30 ET) to discuss the findings of this study and explore recommendations to enhance the use of open data in counteracting land corruption. The webinar will bring together leading land governance, anti-corruption and open data experts to discuss what it takes for open data to have an impact on land corruption, as well as to arrive at recommendations that can guide practitioners and policy makers. We look forward to your participation.
