Goals. The objective of the workshop was to present and exchange experiences on initiatives developed by local governments and their partners to implement mechanisms for transparency, accountability and open government in cities.

The workshop offered an opportunity for cities to discover available SMART solutions that can have a significant impact on transparency and improve communication with the citizen.
