These principles provide a guiding framework for an African data science capacity mobilization initiative spearheaded by ICSU and supported by other Science International partners. The initiative puts forward a comprehensive capacity mobilization plan, to be co-designed and delivered with key partners in Africa. It proposes the establishment of an African Open Data Platform, which will coordinate a series of actions at different levels of national science systems in the region.
Two versions of the Accord are available for download, a short four-pager giving an overview of the key issues, and a long version desribing in detail a proposed international framework for open data in a big data world.
