Open Data Capacity Development Strategy for CSOs and MDAs
This strategy is intended for developing Open Data Capacity (ODC) of selected Malawi Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) on the data supply side and selected Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) on the demand side in the open data generation, packaging, access and use.
Hivos commissioned a study which sought to conduct an in-depth analysis of Covid-19 data in Malawi, which should provide disaggregated data as evidence base for response planning to Covid-19 by policy makers and other development partners.
It is this case study’s contention that SRHR of refugees are not prioritized for adequate integration in humanitarian planning and work. Because of this general failure to appropriately recog- nize refugees’ SRHR (SRHR), the existing challenges in broader society’s SRHR are exacerbated among vulnerable groups.
We find ourselves at a moment in time when the true extent of the challenges facing the world has been thrown into stark relief. To ensure Hivos remains well-equipped to address these challenges – together with our partners and allies – we have adopted a new strategic direction.
