Citizen Empowerment for the Promotion of Good Governance and Participatory Democracy in Algeria

Promoting democratic value is highly needed in the Algerian context, especially after the protests of 2019-2021, as the transition brings a search for reforms and new ways of governance. Civil society needs stronger capacity, up-to-date knowledge and tools, better mobilization, networking, vision. The need to engage citizens and civil society in local development requires frameworks, mechanisms, and tools dependent on experimentation and learning. Local authorities also need stronger capacity for mechanisms and tools for good local governance, so as to modernize and improve public services and better engage citizens in local development.
