Mekong women in open data in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Vietnam : overall trends, case studies, what next?
The research highlights significant inequalities in the open data landscape and in the development sector where data reflect existing privilege, class and race. In Mekong countries (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Vietnam) the means to collect, consolidate, and maintain data collection have been developed within male dominated, bureaucratic, hierarchical systems. Equitable access to meaningful data and information is at the core of the Open Development Initiative mandate. The pervasiveness of lived impacts of gender inequalities requires cross‐cutting changes at a systemic level, from multiple perspectives at once. All four countries face challenges due to poverty and inequality, low accountability, transparency and lack of governance.
