Open Mining Information

Engaging Citizen’s Participation by Developing EI-TECh (Extractive Industry-Transparency E-system & Channels)

Policies affect how localities grow and develop. To reduce poverty, ordinances needs to be relevant and effective. The general public must also engage for this to happen. Unfortunately, not all legislative measures are open for public hearing and most people have limited knowledge that they can participate on these measures. How can the government improve in providing input and propose new legislative measures when the citizen could not express their necessity?

 

Through this commitment, legislative information, processes and measures will be made more public through both online and offline channels. Citizens will be consulted on pieces of legislation over these platforms. This will ensure that the government will pass legislative measures and processes that are relevant and will make more sense and impact towards the people.
