Carl Elmstam

Carl works at the unit for Global Sustainable Economic Development at Sida (the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency). The overarching goal is to increase free, safe and open use of information and communication technology for development. The role combines project management and policy specialist, which includes supporting integration of digital across all sectors at Sida.

Before his current role Carl led Sida’s work to implement the Swedish Transparency Guarantee for international development cooperation. This spanned both the visualization of our open data on Openaid.se and the coordination of the efforts to publish timely high quality open data on all official Swedish aid through the IATI standard (International Aid Transparency Initiative). Carl was the Swedish representative in the IATI secretariat for four years.
