Citizen-centric approach to delivery of public services

The main concept of the project is developing citizen-centric public services, which sets citizens’ interests and needs as the guiding criteria for designing and delivering services rather than those of the service provider. The activities of the project largely encompass strengthening the capacities of CSOs for safeguarding citizens’ interests and their fundamental rights, thus contributing to one of the pillars of modern democracies – accountable, transparent, participatory, inclusive and effective public administration with high quality of service delivery for citizens. Therefore, the project will provide a participatory process, led by civil society working in close collaboration with competent institutions in order to identify measures for streamlining service provision, reduce costs for citizens and the administrative burden, and identify key services which should be improved and ultimately provided electronically.
