Open Data in Palestine

This (Ckan) platform offers (mostly) government and other institutions data in accordance with the Open Data Policy in Palestine - a framework for publishing (non-private) data that is open (technically and legally). You can find more about the policy in this presentation. The Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology (MTIT) manages this site in its capacity as head of the special ministerial committee for open data.


A number of government institutions have been added as either committee members or data providers. These can be viewed from the organizations menu.

Data Requests, Support and Contact Info

Datasets (or updates) are added as they become available. If you have questions or comments or need support (members and data providers), please email and provide your name and contact info along with your request. Be as specific as you can.
