Connecting the dots on how citizens communicate with government either in airing grievances, advocating a cause, or advancing democracy means that governments all over need to adapt to the new way communication is being done – through technology. In the Niger Delta, progress in using technology by state governments to communicate with its citizens is at a slower pace compared to the rest of the country, however, there are shining examples of innovations in technology Niger Delta state governments and government institutions are using to engage their citizens.
This session will explore everything from open budgets to tracking progress on infrastructure projects across the region, from supporting inclusive economic growth by encouraging technology hubs and activities to using appropriate technology in advancing discussions around climate change. Government and the Citizen: Communicating the 21st Century Way in the Niger Delta will spotlight what is currently working (in the tech space) across the Niger Delta and open up the discussion for a variety of perspectives to be aired and championed.
- Understand how Niger Delta state governments and regional government institutions are using technology to communicate with citizens
