Commitment description
What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Insufficient information in machine-readable format available on the websites of state bodies hinders the analysis of state structures’ activities, research on social and economic issues, introduction of innovative projects and applications and development of digital economy in the Kyrgyz Republic in general.
What is the commitment? Creating a national open data platform and mechanisms for public access to open data. Pilot open datasets in machine-readable format will be defined in consultation with civil society and made available on the open data public portal.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Disclosure of the machine-readable data will allow all interested parties to carry out in-depth analysis of state bodies’ performance, create favorable conditions for “digital economy” development as well as expand opportunities for academia and experts to conduct applied research in the field of country’s socio-economic development.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency: Data of the state bodies will be made available on regular basis in machine-readable form.
Citizen participation: Active participation of business, NGOs, media and academia representatives will be ensured in determining priority and relevant data to be disclosed via public open data portal.
