We believe in the importance of building and sharing knowledge through research to inform better policy, practices, standards, and capacity building/data literacy, innovations, and strategic agendas. We believe in sharing products that focus on process as well as findings, and aim to openly provide access to key project documents, research papers, reports, videos and more.


The OD4D program is hosted at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and co-funded by the Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and the Hewlett Foundation.
