DPADM has been conducting research on Open Government Data (OGD) since 2010. OGD is relevant to DPADM’s work as it is an online government service (e-government) and an important initiative that strengthen participatory governance. OGD allows citizens to monitor data streams and thereby improves the accountability and transparency of government. OGD also allows citizens to be aware of important issues and to be part of the decision-making process to address policy issues (e-participation). DPADM's work on open government is divided in four pillars: policies and regulatory framework; organizational framework; channels & modalities; and case studies.
