A critical stock take of the state of open data contributing to open government in Asia and Africa, building on the Web Foundation's 17 country study as well as current phase of research focusing on Asia and Africa. We ask - first, what have we learned of state of open data in Asia and Africa (a broad question but one we will ask based on the Open Data Barometer as well as other studies), and second, to what extent does this contribute to open government? What are the challenges and recommendations? There is an assumption that a) open data is good and b) open data contributes to open government. We want to explore both assumptions and the links between them. This will be a critical piece on the benefits and challenges of open data contributing to open government. Which countries might be leaders in this, which might be stragglers?
