The Role of Joined Up Data Standards in Meeting and Monitoring the SDGs
With the focus of this OGP Summit being on sustainable development, we are keen to bring the potential that joined up open data standards have for the SDGs to the attention of a diverse, global audience and to elicit contributions from a wide range of people, as well as a specific ask that a commitment to joined-up data is included in OGP National Action Plans. Attendees will be able to hear views from a number of expert speakers from a variety of standpoints and contribute their own views to an open debate. Each speaker will briefly set out his or her thoughts on how joining up data standards (e.g. IATI, Open Contracting) can result in effective mechanisms to both meet and monitor the Sustainable Development Goals.

Now What? Taking Action after the Action Plan on Open Commitments
The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with information on the importance of assessments before, during, and after the development of National Action Plans to provide not only the right context for NAP consultations but more specific and tangible next steps to implementing open data commitments toward greater efficiency and national prosperity. The World Bank’s Open Data Readiness Assessments (ODRAs) is one such tried methodology.

From Knowledge to Action: Opening Up Data is not Enough
Infomediaries can ensure access to relevant open data, but what does it take for citizens to engage in civil action? Are we even prepared for citizen engagement yet, or are civil society organizations the only ones with real capacity to influence change?

So you want to Open Geo?
Location is incredibly important. And geodata is hard. It is hard to provide geodata in a useful manner and difficult to work with this data, even with expensive software and expertise. New approaches to managing geodata make it much more accessible to citizens and industry. This will be a practical panel addressing specific questions about how to better open data. Participants have a wide range of experience with the practical aspects of opening geodata.

Conflicting priorities in Open Data Practices. Is the Right to Information threatening the Right to Privacy?
This session intends to gather privacy experts, open data practitioners and FOI advocates to explore the privacy concerns that have emerged across the global community of open data practice. Big data technologies bring powerful utility to open data practice, but they also bring new privacy and security implications for citizens. These concerns should not be left unaddressed. To ensure the sustainability of Open Government endeavours, we need to find ways to integrate the right to privacy into our policies and practices. At the same time, data protection is often cited as the reason for reluctance towards genuine Open Government approaches. Conversely, a careful process to define standards for privacy protections in public sector data management and frameworks that help us balance the Right to Information and the Right to Privacy could add strong support to the broader Open Government agenda.

We would like to stimulate a clarifying and instructive debate with experts from the Open Government and the Privacy field. We will address the relationship between Right to Information and Privacy, speak about experiences with privacy assessments on the governmental level, and present global perspectives on privacy, such as data privacy-conscious Germany, to identify concerns and possible solutions.

Data: A Gender Perspective
This panel will have a discussion about the relevance of gender mainstreaming in access to information. That is, to analyze why it is important that the information generated by the state is disaggregated at least by sex to meet the differentiated impacts on men and women in public policies, legislation and court rulings. UNWomen will talk about the experience they have had in Mexico; Inmujeres will talk about successful efforts and obstacles, while GIRE will discuss about its experience on access to public information related to reproductive rights. Data 4 will show the ways in which information should be systematized so that it can be useful.

Enabling the Data Revolution: An International Open Data Roadmap
More than 1000 participants from 56 different countries took part in the 3rd International Open Data Conference (IODC) in Ottawa from May 28-29, 2015 to understand the global impact of open data, coordinate action, and share best practices. Building on OGP Open data working group streams of work, the conference resulted in an International Open Data Roadmap.  Attendees will learn about the action steps the Roadmap and help us to create a responsive, needs-driven agenda for IODC 2016. We will also look ahead to regional collaborations such as Condatos and the African Open Data Conference as opportunities to focus on the needs of the international community in order to make the most of open data in the context of OGP and sustainable development in their own regions and organisations.
