The African Development Bank (AfDB) has completed the network of Open Data Platforms in all 54 African countries.

This resource provides data on a myriad of topics- ranging from food prices and economic data, through to mobile telephone ownership. It will allow open access to the data needed for managing and monitoring development results in African countries, including tracking progress on the Millennium Development Goals.

The Open Data Platform is a user-friendly tool for extracting data, creating, and sharing customized reports, and visualizing data across themes, sectors and countries through tables, charts, and maps. Through the Platform, users will be able to access a wide range of development data on African countries, consolidated from multiple international and national official sources. The platform will also facilitate the collection, analysis, and sharing of data among countries and with international development partners.
