The brief: The Transforming Education Pakistan (TEP) programme is a multi-year DFID-funded campaign aiming to increase political will to deliver education reform in Pakistan. An integral element of the campaign is the development of a data observatory platform that will corral the definitive data sources on education data (infrastructure, financial, enrolment, performance etc.) and present them in an accessible format. These data will provide a solid foundation against which change in Pakistani education can be tracked, and detailed analysis of the drivers and constraints of reform identified.

The brief: Edo State Government and the World Bank set out to develop Nigeria’s first open data services as part of their commitment to greater transparency. 

The World Bank approached Whythawk and the Open Knowledge Foundation to support the development of a standard open data management platform based on CKAN in a collaborative project with local government. Edo State Government required that comprehensive knowledge transfer take place so that they would have full responsibility for the support and development of the data service.
