CheckMySchool (CMS) Initiative: Open Governance through Stories of Change

CheckMySchool (CMS) originally focused on providing open data on public schools. However, CMS realized that stories like those of the Sta. Fe Central School, Mayderlyn, Ramel, Guimaras, Rizal and Aklan are tangible results of how the initiative is helping create positive change not only in physical services, but also in the personal and community levels. This is why CMS shifted its focus from just promoting transparency to sharing Stories of Change—a shift that in itself is a Story of Change.

Yes we can: Good Governance Data Exists For Countries to Track Goal 16

Governance data has been criticised in some policy circles as not being good enough or available for all countries. This was one of the arguments that almost lead to Goal 16 – which covers targets on everything from peace and justice, to corruption and transparent institutions – to being dropped from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A new initiative by various organizations show that good data does exist. And that many of the targets of Goal 16 can be measured.

The new SDG16 Data Initiative (http://www.sdg16.org), profiles all currently available data on all SDG16 targets.
