We continue implementing the activities for greater transparency and openness of the local self-government units.

New 24 local government units opened over 270 datasets as a result of the support provided by the Metamorphosis Foundation.

As part of its efforts to improve transparency and openness at the local level, the Metamorphosis Foundation, as part of the USAID Civic Engagement Project, provided direct support to 24 local government units in the second round of support. You can read more on the achievements from the first cycle here.

The municipalities that expressed interest and participated in the second cycle of support for data opening are: Ohrid, Vevčani, Centar Župa, Prilep, Bitola, Makedonska Kamenica, Studeničani, Krivogaštani, Makedonski Brod, Debar, Bogdanci, Debrca, Kičevo, Šuto Orizari, Resen, Lipkovo, Jegunovce, Bogovinje, Vrapčiste, Želino, Tetovo, Tearce, Brvenica, and Gostivar. In the period February 28 to April 8, each municipality, in cooperation with local civil society organizations and facilitators, worked on the preparation of open data sets arising from their operation.

Open datasets include data related to municipal budgets, primary and secondary school registers, municipal council members, municipal project data, public procurement, urban and local community registers, staffing structure, public enterprises and institutions and others.

In the visualization below, look at the results of the provided support in the second cycle, for open data and improvement of the transparency of the LSGUs.
