The South African Cities Open Data Almanac (SCODA) is a city-centric data portal that contains data and indicators on issues such as city demographics, productive cities, inclusive cities, sustainable cities, and well-governed cities. These datasets can help cities by supporting the planning, management, monitoring, and reporting needs of cities.
