Open Data Day Nepal 2018


If you produce data, publish it. If you have data, use it. If you don’t have data, demand it.

On March 3, Open Data Day Nepal 2018 with as theme ‘Open Data For Everyone’ was celebrated at Patan Durbar Square and Museum. The day was jointly organized under the banner of Open Nepal by Accountability Lab, Bikas Udhyami, Center for Data Journalism, Freedom Forum, Kathmandu Living Labs, Local Interventions Group and Open Knowledge Nepal. This film commemorates the event and is designed to increase awareness of open data and what it means for Nepal. Highlights include the activities of the day, which helped people understand data in an easier way. “Usually people have difficulty in understanding data. But the infographics we have around here helped people to understand complex data.” says Santosh Gartaula of Bikas Udhyami.

A special thank you to Gopal Shivakoti for producing this film.

The film and event were supported and funded by the Data for Development (D4D) Program implemented by The Asia Foundation in partnership with Development Initiatives and funded by the UK Government’s Department for International Development.
