> Hey OpenSpending folks,
> as I’ve mentioned to some of you, I’m looking to work on
> AfricanSpending.org, turning it into Code for Africa’s (
> http://codeforafrica.org) resource on financial data. We’re not quite
> sure where to go with the site, so I’m doing a bit of research to find out
> more about what is happening on this group of topics in African countries.
> To that end, I’ve started setting up a little Google Doc that lists
> projects, datasets and initiatives of interest:
> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1o7OM-UL9hbX3fRkGQUcDEFIAHTOmxnu-pQI_2tKFHos/edit#gid=0
> I’d love to find out what other initiatives people on this list are aware
> of, so please add any items that are missing! Here’s some guidelines, feel
> free to ignore:
> - It doesn’t matter if its a group, a project, a piece of software or a
> dataset.
> - It’s loosely related to Africa and public finance (or other, like FDI,
> remittances).
> - It’s data-driven, or could/should be.
> - It’s not a bubbly map of aid projects ;)
> Bonus points for any of the following:
> - NGOs/Initiatives that would benefit from using data in their work, but
> aren’t yet
> - Projects that combine public data with community monitoring
> - Interesting datasets around extractives, procurement, …
> This exercise has very little structure, so if you have ideas for how to
> get it all properly taxonomised, please let me know :)
> All the best,
> - Friedrich
