Nepal Open Data Index 2015

See how data can change the world!!
A world where knowledge creates power for the many, not the few.
A world where data frees us – to make informed choices about how we live, what we buy and who gets our vote.
A world where information and insights are accessible – and apparent – to everyone.
This is the world we choose.

Global Challenges
Open information is essential to help everyone understand the issues, think of and try out solutions, and keep track of the risks and successes.

Citizens, Democratic Accountability and Governance
All citizens should have free and open access to information about how their society operates, at national, regional and local levels, so that governments can be scrutinised and held to account.

Consumers and Business Accountability
Everyone must be able to find out information about who owns and controls businesses, so that poor governance and damaging social and environmental practices can be uncovered, and to understand fully the products and services they use.

Research, Science and Culture
Free access to the sum of human knowledge enables everyone to fully understand their lives and our world, to make informed choices, and to build a better future together.
