Open Standards and APIs for a Better World

How can open standards and APIs be used to improve public service delivery in the developing world? What are the challenges and lessons learned from developing and implementing a common open data standard globally? What is the role of the tech community and API specialists in such a process? Pernilla Näsfors is working as a Development Data Specialist at the World Bank, helping recipients of aid to open up and standardize the data in their country systems. She will share her experiences from working with other international aid donors and local governments at the World Bank, and from her previous job as the product manager of the website at the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), one of the first Swedish government websites with an open API.
