Public Call for Comment - Open Data Policy for eThekwini Municipality, Durban, South Africa
All responses welcome!
Help us create an Open Data Policy for eThekwini Municipality, Durban, South Africa.

eThekwini Municipality believes that the lives of citizens living in Durban can be dramatically improved by providing open data about key public services. The eThekwini Council demonstrated this belief when it noted on 2015-03-31 that eThekwini should, in the long term, provide open data for all its Citizens. Global experience shows that the benefits of open data include economic growth and job creation, improved public services and a more transparent government.

The eThekwini Office of Strategy Management has commissioned the Research & Policy Advocacy (RAPA) Department to draft the Open Data Policy for the municipality. RAPA is conducting stakeholder consultation before drafting the policy and would love to have your views on the following questions:
