DATA-DRIVEN APPROACH TO TACKLING GOVERNMENT AND CITIZEN CHALLENGES
Enabling Government Communications
Strengthening Citizen Engagement
Enhancing Transparency in Governance
We designed and initiated an election project that educated nearly 1 million citizens
We ensured that stakeholders had access to simplified and factual key components of the election process, such that conveyed a straight-to-the-point picture while disputing rumors and propaganda surrounding the elections.
We used homegrown technology to help millions at risk from a devastating famine while illunating incidences of child trafficking in IDP camps
The benefits are enormous - there are implications for facilitating reduced resource wastage since information about how much food and items are needed in each camp, who is donating what, and where the gaps are so others can fill them. It also helps to track whether situations are getting better or worse. Access to data has been tough due to bureaucratic bottlenecks and organizational culture also known as the ‘it-is-the-usual-way-we-do-things’ syndrome. As an ordinary citizen, making detailed IDP related information available is something government must prioritize and that it shouldn’t be hard for them to do.
We helped reform government communication by empowering over 80 government information communication officers
Worldwide digitally enabled governments are transforming how they work, organize and engage with citizens. They are formulating policies, making promises, crafting strategies to transform public service delivery to meet citizens expectations.
We simplified and designed the Citizens' Guide to Understanding the Budget to empower millions of citizens with knowledge to understanding how public resources are managed
The Federal Budget as a fiscal policy tool affects many aspects of our economy such as the general productivity in the economy, the price level of goods and services, interest rates at which individuals and businesses can borrow money, the exchange rate at which the Naira trades against other currencies and the rate of growth of the economy. By understanding how public resources are managed, citizens can better follow the budgeting process including its implementation. This will empower them to better hold Government to its promises on delivering on on public goods and services.
We launched a project to collect, analyse and map dates, locations, and fatalities of the Herders and Farmers conflict
The crisis has been going on for years now. Lives and properties lost on all sides. It has been reported that over 3,920 persons lost their lives in the Agatu massacres between 2013 and 2017.
