In 2014, the G20’s Anti-corruption Working Group (ACWG) established open data as one of the issues that merit particular attention in the promotion of public sector transparency and integrity priority area. In this regard, the development of the G20 Open Data Principles by the Anti-corruption Working Group has been identified as a first step towards leveraging open data as a crucial tool to enable a culture of transparency, accountability and access to information as efforts to prevent corruption. These Principles have been developed considering international standards, good practices and under the scope of three pillars: 1. The exponential progress in digital technologies and the unparalleled increase in the amount, sources, quality of available data and common data standards provide the right environment and necessary tools to promote the availability and use of open data in the fight against corruption. 2. Transparency is paramount in the anti-corruption agenda and can be mutually reinforced through an active collaboration based on the availability and use of open data; and, 3. As such, Open Data can help prevent, detect, investigate and reduce corruption.
