Our analysis of data exchange agreements (DAS) has shifted to 6 categories of questions in the Contractual Wheel of Data Collaboration. Created by GovLab and built from an evaluation of legal agreements, this wheel and C4DC online library of legal clauses were the basis of our analytical framework. They can also be used as a guide for users to better understand the nature and operation of data exchange agreements. A water data agreement between UN Environment and Google addresses the question “When will the agreement be in force?” as follows: A climate data agreement between several public and private actors in British Columbia in Canada addresses the question “How will security and privacy be protected?” as follows: For more information on this analytical framework, see trust-based partnerships : Implementation of Contracts for Data Collaboration (C4DC) (C4DC) contracts, 2019. The contract wheel begins with general categories that naturally appear in data discussions, and then offers an increasingly detailed sub-analysis in a logical sequence of these general categories, in order to demystify structured actions and facilitate the understanding of actual DSAs. The analytical framework and concept of data cooperation are designed to address the lack of clarity on these data sharing and data action plan issues, which often result in high transaction costs and significant delays in negotiating the terms of an ASD. “In order to ensure a comprehensive monitoring of the environmental dimension of sustainable development, the parties also agree to cooperate in the dissemination and visualization of data. In this area of cooperation, the parties agree to make public and freely available the products derived from the cooperation (if possible on the basis of the license of underlying data sets, other partner restrictions and Google`s economically reasonable efforts) with regard to open data and, if possible, the use of standard distribution formats. Derivatives are available for viewing and downloading in the respective digital ecosystems of Google and UN Environment. This work will build on Google`s existing expertise in google Earth Engine and UN Environment in relation to MapX. “This agreement is governed by the Freedom of Information and Protection Privacy Act of British Columbia. “Subject to a law requiring a party to disclose information in its possession, including the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act, the parties treat confidentially any information or material clearly identified as confidential or proprietary.” “Each part: […] Keep the responsibility to maintain a party`s network and ensure the integrity and safety of its weather stations, data queries, databases and reporting systems. The categories are described below with related examples from the C4DC library.
