What is Uraía?

The Uraía Platform is a space of exchange about the possibilities offered by SMART technologies to innovate in local management. We support local governments in improving local finances, decreasing the cost of public services and reinforcing transparency and accountability by providing stronger channels of communication with the citizen. Uraía means "Citizenship" in the Swahili language: The qualities that a person is expected to have as a responsible member of a community. Merriam-Webster.
