My Place: Local Governance Reform Data Project in BiH
The overall, long-term goal of the project “My Place (‘Moje mjesto’): Local Governance Reform Data Project in Bosnia and Herzegovina” is to help local governance reform efforts in BiH, with the specific objectives of 1) simplifying access to municipality-related data for all interested stakeholders; 2) increasing transparency of local self-government reform processes and performance of local governments; 3) advancing policy making processes and efforts at the local government level.
Project activities include the creation of comprehensive, easy-to-use, publicly accessible data sets on each BiH municipality, the creation of analytical tools enabling comparison across municipalities, collection of other relevant information and reports on each municipality and creation of data profiles for each municipality, establishment of a website that would be used as an interface for users of data sets and profiles, as well as systematic promotion and advocacy activities.
The project is supported by the Think Tank Fund of the Open Society Foundations and Open Society Foundations Information Program from Budapest, as well as the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation BiH (SDC BiH).
The “My Place” project was active during the period from 2011 to 2014.
Database on municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina on the website www.mojemjesto.ba is updated with data that was available for the period 2004 – 2013.
