Choosing and Engaging with Citizen Generated Data

The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, Open Knowledge International and Public Data Lab have published a guide for Citizen Generated Data (CDG) for use by governments, international organizations and others interested in developing, engaging with and supporting CGD initiatives.

The guide describes six (6) steps:

  1. Define the goals and scope of the initiative.
  2. Clarify what CGD approach is useful for your the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data purpose.
  3. Clarify how the participation of people will help,
  4. What resources are available to support CGD.
  5. Making Citizen Generated Data public.
  6. Consider risks, responsible data use and protection.

The guide also has suggested further reading, links to existing CGD tools and  a list of over 200 CGD initiatives.
