Open data project

TOGO Open data project

The aim of this project is to apply technology to intersect citizen engagement with institutional improvement, to facilitate societal change.

The project methodology is deploying refined data mining skillsets to creatively represent data and empower citizens to use the resulting information in demanding improved service delivery. Beyond budget access, the project functions on the premise that budgets must work for the people.

Simultaneously, the project will contribute to influence the national agenda on public spending, with its policy papers covering government finance, sub-national viability, Open Government schemes, as well as the analyses of anti-corruption and transparency initiatives.

Our focus are budget access, tracking, extractives and institutional support.

TRACKING OF PROJECTS
