District Citizen Review Board in Bogotá Prioritizes Citizen Control

 

foto-oportunidades-cambio-ciudades1The District Citizen Review Board of Bogota – the entity in charge of promoting transparency in public administration – signed an innovative agreement with Avina and ten high-level organizations and local networks from the city that strengthens citizen control over the board’s objectives, goals and functions. Three joint task forces were established and produced recommendations for policies in the areas of solid waste, participatory budgets and citizen participation. Establishing concrete social control practices demonstrates that a new citizen dialogue regarding public decision-making processes is in fact a civic responsibility.
