This is a startup launch of the Afghanistan Open Data Project, a community effort to release into the public domain a combination of political, social, and economic datasets of significance to elections in Afghanistan.

Open Data is a key element of a country's infrastructure that fosters private innovation, public accountability, and civil society participation. The Afghanistan Open Data project will harness the power of openness to promote free and fair elections in Afghanistan.

The website was created by Development Seed to facilitate Afghan and international organizations sharing data with citizens and with each other. Contact us at info@developmentseed.org to learn more about the project or to get involved.
