Governance and Citizen Engagement
Omidyar Network India seeks to strengthen the relationship between citizens and government. We enable citizens to be informed, have agency over the issues that matter most to them, and hold their political leaders to account.
We work to support
- Entrepreneurs with innovative web and mobile tools that make citizen participation easier and more meaningful, and help governments respond to citizens’ needs.
- Independent journalism that reports on issues concerning citizens and civil society through support such as equity investments in new business models.
- Civil society organisations and innovative start-ups that define best practices around governments’ disclosure of information. This includes information around
government-delivered services, legislative performance, public revenue, and expenditure.
