The session will discuss how transparency initiatives as FOI and open data can lead to specific economic, political, and social outcomes by looking at examples where these initiatives achieved results in education, health, government reform, and public works, among others. The session will start with lightning talks from invited speakers. Session participants will then be asked to select topic that interests them where deep dives will be done, with participants in the roundtables also contributing their examples. The session will end with topic leads reporting to the plenary. The output of the session is a compendium of examples where transparency initiatives resulted to concrete changes in the lives of people or communities.
