The Democracy for Development Institute (D4D), has started holding info sessions with municipal assembly members, starting from municipality of Mitrovica. The purpose of the info sessions was to inform municipal assembly members on good governance practices. During the presentation was unveiled the platform, goodgovernance.info, and the facilities that this platform provides, to members of municipal assemblies, especially those who are in this position for the first time.
The “Good Governance” platform has been produces as a need in Kosovo to bring local decision-makers closer to citizens. Given that in Kosovo, many public officials struggle with understanding what good governance means when translated into the everyday tasks they need to exercise and the standards they need to uphold in the exercise of their official duties. This platform is useful in fulfilling the knowledge gap of municipal officials, assisting public representatives and citizens, as both parties will be able to continuously verify the correct functioning of procedures and relations in public institutions.
This activity is supported by Kosovar Civil Society Foundation (KCSF) program ‘Eja Kosovo’, co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Sweden, and Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg.
