Local governments are becoming more cognizant of ICT’s power in giving citizens a voice and how it helps them to transcend from mere civic engagement to civic participation. This session will gather high-level representatives from local governments and civil society to share their experience in using ICT to help citizens partake in local governance. The session will culminate with the launch of the WeGO Civic Participation System (CPS), an IT-based smart complaint management system. The CPS is being offered free for WeGO members and will promote transparent government service delivery, aid in policy development, and help in increasing government efficiency.
