Join us to explore financial data to answer:
Where do the government contracts go? Which government contractors are building the schools in oil concession areas?
Where does Nigerian tax payer money go - if you live in rural Nigeria or in Lagos?
How would the Nigerian budget look like if revenues were shared differently?
How can data on revenues from extractive industries in Nigeria be explored (with reports from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative).
The Data Expedition is organised in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Effective Co-operation and will explore a breath of financial data in Nigeria from procurement and government spending to revenues from extractive industries. The expedition will allow you to dive into the financial data with first hand guidance from YourbudgIT in Lagos.
The participants will be able to explore the following data during the Data Expedition:
Federal procurement data (opened up and released specifically for this event)
Budgets for the federal government and the city of Lagos
Reports for Nigeria from EITI
Other financial data might be including from sources such as the World Bank
YourbudgIT: Is a transparency organisation behind several campaigns on government spending and recently campaigned for improved access to parliamentary expenditures under the hashtag #Ourmass.
