Description

A well-informed citizen is one of the major forces behind the development of a state. Therefore, it is planned to publish information of high public interest pro-actively on the web-site of each administrative agency.A unified public information database will be created: data.gov.ge, where citizens can easily access public information which is sorted under thematic sections. The same web-site will allow visitors to request public information online. The rationale behind this project is to simplify the task of locating information among numerous entities for individuals. Everything will be available on the same web-site.It is highly expected that the information that will be available online will boost further discussions and help to identify the need for introducing changes wherever necessary. For this reason the government will launch ichange.ge - a platform where citizens will be able to express their opinions, criticism or ideas. A project team will work on this web-site to tackle the most discussed topics, identify major concerns and inform responsible authorities.Ichange.ge will also give the possibility to create and submit e-petitions. When an e-petition reaches a certain number of signatories (depending on the scale of the issue under question) authorities will be under the obligation to react.
