Why an Open Government Matters

Open government is a culture of governance that promotes the principles of transparency, integrity, accountability and stakeholder participation in support of democracy and inclusive growth.  Transparent, accessible, and credible data has emerged as a key tool for safeguarding the integrity of Somalia’s democracy against conflict, corruption, and abuses of power. Data empowers civil society, journalists, and citizens to hold power-holders accountable and to expose and address corruption.

Bareedo Platform has been leading a campaign aimed to encourage open government by offering commentary and analysis of all available government in which is hard to the public to understand, to promote democracy and accountable government and challenge corruption of the culture of secrecy.
