The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency invites to open budget data

Open Data Tutorial: Opening and promoting the use of budget data

The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT) is a global network that facilitates dialogue between governments, civil society organisations, international financial institutions and other stakeholders to find and share solutions to challenges in fiscal transparency. Guiding principles are advocacy and high-level dialogue, peer-learning and technical collaboration, research, and technology for participation.

The GIFT Open Data tutorial showcases tools that enable the data opening process to contribute to a successful budget transparency policy. It provides practical guidance on topics such as:

  • the debugging and cleaning of data sets;
  • the use and linking of national and international standards;
  • user licences;
  • considerations on human and other types of resources.
