This is a pilot project financed by the European Parliament that seeks to regain public confidence in local public institutions through Open Government.
Specifically, Open Government will be implemented for 4 years in three municipalities of the Dry Corridor of Guatemala, in the department of Zacapa: Río Hondo, Estanzuela and Teculután, promoting its participation, collaboration and accountability axes in Food and Nutrition Security, the main strategic need of the territory.
In participation, communication between citizens and local powers will be improved and participation mechanisms will be improved, so that public policies are co-designed, such as the planned Food and Nutrition Security Strategy.
In collaboration, new food and nutritional security measures will be implemented for 2 years in homes and communities collaboratively with neighbors, public institutions, the private sector and the academy.
In accountability, a data collection protocol based on indicators will be established so that citizens and public institutions know with certainty the efficiency of the actions carried out and have criteria for the design of new programs and public services.
This pilot project not only pursues institutional training at the municipal level but also creates an environment of co-responsibility in municipal policy based on citizen participation, the inclusion of vulnerable groups and the gender perspective, which are a management model for other institutions and themes .
