Gavin Chait

Open Data Consultant
I have spent more than a decade in economic and business development initiatives in South Africa. I was the commercial lead of open data projects at the Open Knowledge Foundation, and led the implementation of Edo State, Nigeria's first open data portal (a World Bank project), the Pakistan Education Data Portal for HTSPE (a DFID project) and numerous other open data projects around the world. I have also conducted research into open access and open data publishing on behalf of the World Bank and Public Health Research Data Forum.
