Kigoma Final IRM Report 2017 – For Public Comment
In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published its assessment report for Kigoma’s first action plan, prepared by the independent researcher, Deus Valentine in collaboration with the IRM. It covers the full action plan implementation period of January 2017 through December 2017.
The IRM findings are summarized as follows:
Kigoma Ujiji’s action plan focused on improving access to government-held information on land ownership, education, health services, water supply, and the municipal budget. Future action plans could address current limitations in the co-creation and monitoring process by strengthening the scope of participation for civil society and the private sector. Additionally, open government activities could go beyond the online publication of information to develop new accountability mechanisms or strengthen existing mechanisms for citizens to use the information made available.
The version of the report for public comment is available below. The two-week public comment period closed 30 January 2019.
