From July 21 to October 6, 2014, applications were received for the 2nd edition of the Gobernarte 2014 Award, which invited sub-national government such as states, departments, provinces or municipalities, to submit public management innovations with the cooperation of organizations from the civil society or the private sector.
In its 2014 edition, the Gobernarte award seeks to identify, reward, document and disseminate initiatives which through digital media such as social networks, mobile telephony, web and mobile applications as well as technological solutions, have increased vulnerable populations’ access to public services, which have been developed by sub-national governments between 2012 and 2014. The initiatives were divided into 4 categories.
The four winning initiatives will be recognized in a public ceremony in Washington, D.C., in which they will be awarded a trophy and an electronic quality seal for being one of the best innovation practices in Latin America and the Caribbean.
