Description

Open aid and open international development refer to several things:

  • Open data in international development. Note that this is not the same as having an API - everyone must also be free to use the data as they wish.
  • Open knowledge for aid and international development - which includes the use of open licenses.
  • Open standards for knowledge sharing in international development.

The word "open" has become trendy. It is important to distinguish between (for example) APIs for data which come with restrictive use agreements, and true openness through open licenses and open wikis.
