Community Meeting on RTI and Service Delivery Issues(Open)(KPK)

Event Details

Description The Right to Information is a benchmark development in the process of creating transparency and accountability in the administrative system. RTI provides a chance to citizens to use acquired information in exercise of their political, economic and legal rights which in turn strengthen their capability to improve the quality of their life. RTI is a powerful tool that strengthens democracy and promotes good governance by enhancing the citizen’s ability to participate in the process.

Centre for Peace and Development Initiatives, (CPDI), after contributing to the enactment of the RTI Laws in KP and Punjab, is now trying to popularize the concept of getting access to information held by public bodies as a right by using this law. It is in this context that CPDI is engaged in awareness raising and capacity building of local communities in District Hangu with following objectives:

·         Increase participants’ knowledge of RTI

·         Develop participants’ capacity to advocate for their right to know

·         To enhance public accountability of the government officials for improved quality of service delivery

It is in this context that Centre for Peace and Development Initiatives, (CPDI) is conducting community meeting on January 26, 2017 at Station Road, Hangu from 03:00 pm to 05:00 pm.
