An open data law for climate resilience and disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  Stratbase Albert Del Rosario Institute for Strategic and International Studies (ADRi)

This document aims to clarify the key elements of open data and to serve as a proposal to institute and strictly implement a policy for climate change and disaster risk reduction-related data and information based on its articulated and internationally accepted definition in the Philippines. The document describes the different considerations for the Philippines in its decision to fully adopt, support and promote a policy for open data for DRR.

Defining the standards in an open data law will mandate compliance to the key elements of open data, which include:

  1. availability in digital format of data, downloadable via the internet in bulk for ease of use;
  2. amenability to intermixing with other datasets through an interoperable format structure and machine-readability of digital files;
  3. freedom to use, reuse and redistribute, even on commercial basis; and
  4. a 'no conditions' rule on the use of open data, except for appropriate citation for due credit.
