The E-Participation Policy aims at instituting the culture and practices of e-participation across government entities, as well as improving transparency and public participation, thereby assisting the State of Qatar in achieving its national development goals.
The Government of the State of Qatar has always recognized the value of engaging the public in governance processes. Qatar’s National Development Strategy 2011-2016 acknowledges that people are any country’s most valuable asset and that their participation in political, social, and economic spheres will contribute to sustaining a prosperous society.
Engagement with citizens allows governments to tap into wider perspectives, sources of information, and potential solutions to improve decisions and services. It also provides the basis for fruitful relationships and constructive discussions, which ultimately achieves better governance.
The objective of e-participation is to engage the public in the development policy and decision-making processes through use of information and communication technologies.
