Democracy Plus (D+)

Citizen Reported Service Requests Across Kosovo

When you spot potholes, broken streetlights, and damaged street signs in Kosovo, you can report this issue to your local government using the platform, a Fix My Community project run by Democracy Plus. With over 2600 problems reported around the country, this platform also provides a large amount of information about the issues, including if they have been addressed by local governments and after how long. Democracy Plus uses Keshif to visualize citizen reports thematically and geospatially and make it easy for municipal governments to easily digest the information, view trends by category and municipality, identify gaps and number of days to review and respond to issues.
