  • CD: Bürgerbeteiligung per Mobilfunk

    ICT4Gov-Leiter: "Vertrauen zwischen Bürger und Regierung hergestellt"

    Das World Bank Institute (WBI) http://wbi.worldbank.org arbeitet seit 2007 an demokratiebildenden Maßnahmen in der Demokratischen Republik Kongo (DRK). Seit 2010 versucht man sich an der Umsetzung von Bürgerhaushalten, etwa in der kriegszerüttenden Region Süd-Kivu. Dort führte die Beteiligung der Bevölkerung nicht nur zur Umsetzung erster Projekte, sondern auch zu verstärktem Vertrauen zwischen Bürgern und Politik, berichtet der ICT4Gov-Teamleiter Boris Weber http://ict4gov.net gegenüber pressetext. Ein wichtiger Kommunikationskanal ist dabei der Mobilfunk, dessen Nutzung im Land stark ansteigt.

    A new Internet Exchange Point (IXP) was launched earlier this month in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which will help Government with the implementation of E-governments services and will lower the cost of local application development.

  • CD: Most DRC government ministries still have no websites

    The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) may have inaugurated a fibre optic landing station and may be promoting the ‘revolution of modernism’, but its ministries and other institutions have nothing to do with modernism and digital revolution.

    Apart from the office of the Prime Minister (Primature), the Presidency, the Senate and a few ministries that have websites, most of the government ministries are nowhere to be found online, and only a lucky Google research can show that a certain ministry exists in the country.

  • Congo, Rwanda to enhance cooperation in ICT

    The Rwandan Minister highlighted the efforts made by his country in the past 15 years to connect to the world through fiber optic technology.

  • Mobile-Enhanced Participatory Budgeting in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

    In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are helping increase citizen participation, positively transforming the relation between citizens and their government, ultimately resulting in more effective public service delivery.

    Mobile phones are performing a key role in enhancing transparency and accountability. Mobile penetration in the DRC is increasing rapidly, from 16% to 47% in 2013. In addition, 55% of the country’s population resides in areas currently covered by mobile networks, including most rural areas from the eastern province of South Kivu.
