Data governance is emerging as a new opportunity and concern for city managers. Effectively managing data assets while considering privacy, usability, integration and availability are key aspects of achieving its good governance. And even though it can lead to an improved planning and efficiency of services, the fact that not all data is collected by the municipality arises multi-stakeholder challenges. Hence, this session will discuss the political and ethical aspects of data governance and will go through the main data principles of the concept, such as the need to guarantee privacy for users and to assure the availability and openness to the general public.
