‘Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Developing Countries (ODDC) was a 2 and a half year research driven project, beginning in February 2013 with the goals of exploring how open data improves governance, and build capacity in these countries to engage with open data. The initial phase of this project was implemented through 17 sub- grants to partners from 12 countries and was evaluated in 2014. Over the last two years, the original research products have continued to be circulated and there is evidence that they have started to have a more noticeable effect on global understanding of open data. This evaluation provides an overview of what the impact of these activities have been on the wider open data policy world and on the research partners themselves.
