Challenge O1: Geocoded Aid Data (ROOM FONTAINE OUTREMONT)

Several developing countries and donors are publishing disaggregated, geocoded datasets of aid projects, which answer the question “who is doing what where?” This challenge aims to help make sense of this data and investigate how to present it so that it can be useful and appealing to the people who benefit from these projects.

Outcomes: prototypes that either a) help better understand open aid datasets (e.g. analysis, comparisons) or b) present data in a way that makes it accessible and useful to people on the ground.

Main datasets: datasets from countries’ aid information management systems and donors.

Leads: Johannes Kiess, Pernilla Näsfors and Qiyang Xu, World Bank Institute
