Open data at the local level in Mexico: Scaling up initiatives within and across levels of government (Open Government Data Review of Mexico: Data Reuse for Public Sector Impact and Innovation)

This chapter presents and discusses the Mexican government's efforts aimed to transfer the vision for open data set by the centre of government to the local level, and to spur the development of open data initiatives across states and municipalities. It draws upon the work of the OECD on multi-level policy coherence, highlighting its importance for the achievement of national and supranational policy objectives, such as the Sustainable Development Goals. The chapter discusses multi-level stakeholder collaboration as an instrument of value co-creation and data crowdsourcing from local population; underlining the relevance of co-operation, collaboration and policy transfer between the central and local levels of government, and among local governments in Mexico.
