Data Driven Governance


At the Africa Open Data Conference I was fortunate to have a chat with Juliana Letara, the Town Planner for Kinondoni Municipality and Osiligi Lossai, the Ward Executive Officer of Tandale. We discussed the recent community mapping, how they are beginning to use the maps and the data and some unexpected outcomes.

A longer blog will be incoming on how data is being used to support governance in Dar es Salaam. Personally, I’m still digesting some of the implications and potential of what they’re discussing, regarding the potential impact that Ramani Huria (also here http://ramanihuria.org) could have and is having in Dar es Salaam.
