Public Awareness of and Engagement in Government Service Delivery

Challenges to address

In Cambodia information about land concessions, industrial development, laws and public services are often only available in printed form and hard to find. Without accurate and accessible information about public services, it is difficult to make informed decisions but people are also vulnerable to misinformation and additional fees.

Activities

The project will gather information about public services, requirements for an process of obtaining common documents and licenses and the location of health centres and schools . This information will be shared online as maps infographics and documents.

The information is gathered either through researching available documents or by visiting schools, health centres and Commune Sangkat Offices. The data is verified, compiled into open data datasets and published to the Open Development Portal. Profile pages, maps, infographics make the data accessible to a wide audience.
