Open Knowledge has extended a fellowship opportunity to Women Environmental Programme – Open Data for Development Embedded Fellowship. The purpose of this fellowship is to provide technical support to WEP to build more on her open data capacity.
In this regard, Open Knowledge engaged a consultant- Oludotun Babayemi, Monitoring and Evaluation Expert at Connected Development(CODE), and co-founder of CODE’s Follow the Money.
The consultant is expected to: identify organizational open data capacity gaps; try to fill the identified data capacity gaps through training or any other methodology that may be appropriate to fill the identified gaps; support WEP in designing and integrating open data initiatives in new and existing projects and programmes; build capacity of the organization in developing and or accessing and using open data tools; provide the necessary guidance and direction to WEP in relation to open data and serve as a resource for WEP for open data within the period of the fellowship.
This fellowship runs from October to December 2016.
WEP has since benefitted from this fellowship as capacities of staff have been built on, different open data issues ranging from survey design, data collection tools, data scraping and extraction, data analysis and visualization.
The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of WEP heartily express sincere appreciation to Open Knowledge for this kind gesture.
