Highlighted digital public goods

Based on recommendations from Communities of Practice, the Digital Public Goods Alliance produces reports highlighting sector-specific digital public goods for their potential to address critical needs in specific sectors. Thus far these reports include DPGs for Financial Inclusion that are digital public infrastructure (DPI) projects with high relevance for advancing financial inclusion at scale, DPGs for Health that are Global Goods (mature, health-focused digital public goods) with high relevance for immunization delivery management, and DPGs that support climate change adaptation efforts via the use of weather, climate, and hydrological open datasets.

These are the first of many sector-specific reports forthcoming from the DPGA.

Six digital public goods are being highlighted by the DPGA: Apache Fineract, Mifos, Mojaloop, MOSIP, OpenCRVS, and X-Road.

Climate Change Adaptation

The limited availability of high-quality datasets is hindering decision-making and stifling technical innovation which has the potential to address critical climate change adaptation needs. This report, co-authored by ITU and WMO, calls for weather, climate, and hydrological datasets to be made open and freely available as digital public goods. In addition, the report highlights 8 DPGs that exemplify how open datasets can power open-source technologies for climate change adaptation.
