The Impact of Open Data in Ukraine
Analytical report by the Ministry of Digital Transformation for the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate
Ukraine

The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine  has recently published an analytical report on the impact of open data in the construction and urban development sector.

This sector has historically been prone to corruption and has faced many challenges, such as violation of urban development laws, real estate investment risks, post factum legalisation of unlawful construction projects, and incompetent renovation of historic buildings. Part of the explanation for these problems is the unavailability of data of the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate (SACI), the main authority in the sector. SACI holds the largest database of new development projects in Ukraine and includes information on all building permits issued between 2012 and 2020. In December 2019, this information was made available on the Single State Web Portal of Open Data.

The current report mentions, among others, how violations of urban development law can be combatted by using open data and how open data contributes to greater transparency and accountability around SACI operations. Generally, the report addresses the social issues that can be resolved by using data sharing in the construction and urban development sector, specifically in terms of the effect on citizens, businesses, and government.
