#CivicTechAsia: Using Civic Technologies for Governance Innovation
In this session, we will take a look at how governments, civil society, and development partners have supported the development and implementation of civic technology projects designed to better engage citizens in governance, and whether these efforts have resulted or not in improving the way that business is done in government, especially in delivering quality public goods and services.
