This work is based on a new implementation of our Freedom of Information platform Alaveteli. It looks into whether rapid prototyping, based on real-case user needs, can result in a more effective civic tool.
Thus far, there has been an initial pilot in South Africa and we are currently planning further pieces of work in sub-Saharan Africa. We’ll announce those on this page, as they happen.
