Uraía is a space of exchange about the possibilities offered by SMART technologies to innovate in local public management. We support local governments in their effort to improve local finances, reduce the cost of public services and reinforce transparency and accountability by opening new channels of communication with the citizen. The word "Uraía" means "Citizenship" in the Swahili language.FIND OUT MORE
