Open Development Cambodia (ODC) is an open data website, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. The open data movement is based on the simple premise that data collected for the public interest should be publicly available without restrictions. Information or data in the public domain should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish. Open Development Cambodia does not promote any particular perspective, agenda, or bias other than to provide objective information about Cambodia and its development. ODC was launched in 2011 as an independent, politically-neutral body and registered with the Ministry of Interior in Cambodia as a local NGO in 2015.
