Joining the #sdgAG Partnership ?

Consider Principles of Innovation (Principles for Digital Development) #pi9 - Be collaborative. By suitably #tagging genuine content, stakeholders and donors can contribute it to an open domestic and global conversation on governance, knowledge sharing and innovation for sustainable development, the economic activities and functions of government in Antigua and Barbuda, its cities and municipalities. By providing low-hurdle access to open data that matters to a particular context or trade, stakeholders are empowered to add data-driven elements to the discourse.

In a #tag2wiki step, the #tagged discourse can be curated, analysed, and shared and conflicting viewpoints can be covered in wiki sector maps and maps of the functions of government, as part of Antigua and Barbuda's planning for inclusive and sustainable development1.

This reference page for Antigua and Barbuda is not intended for being read in a linear way. Rather, it must be used as a "4 dimensional topic map" for a knowledge and data driven development discourse in Antigua and Barbuda. The reader with an interest in a particular topic can quickly find open data and other content on that "topic in its context and dimension". Before contributing new content, we recommend the reader to minimally check the content that is (referenced) on this page, and to keep in mind Principles of Innovation (Principles for Digital Development) #pi7 - Reuse and improve. For what concerns the reuse, improving or addition of new content, we recommend the use of the suitable hashtag with awareness of its dimension (lgu, sdg, isic or cofog).


#AGlgu tags for administrative units, with curated open data2

#AGlgu tags combine the ISO country code AG with the numerical part of the ADM1 Code for the parish/paroisse

Note: As there is no domestically defined geocode for each parish/paroisse, we use the numerical part of the ADM1 code3. Obtain that code from the ADM1 Code Search module by entering Antigua and Barbuda's GEC country code: AG4.
