Innovative Packaging of Free, Public-domain Data and Knowledge to Support Sustainable Development

Nagaraja Rao Harshadeep

World Bank, United States of America

There is a world of free data, information, and knowledge products available today. This masterclass will showcase a few innovative approaches to package such products to promote sustainable development. This will focus on two approaches:

- Packaging Data: The use of modern Apps and Portals to access, visualize, and analyze at your fingertips a growing range of free data products from in-situ and earth observation and emerging cloud computing technologies. This will build on the use of World Bank apps such as the Spatial Agent.

- Packaging Knowledge: Introduce the concept of interactive e-books that package existing knowledge products (including text, interactive maps, multi-media, infographics, case studies, and storymaps) into a user-friendly interactive platform that can be access on any online digital platforms in the form of live, updatable e-books. This will draw upon a growing set of interactive e-books being developed by the World Bank working with partner agencies.
