Modern civics

Technology has advanced the quality of human life in innumerable ways. One of the most prominent and emerging ways is the streamlining of government bureaucracy. This article looks at how technology is enabling countries in the EMEA region--such as the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, Egypt, and Jordan--replace paperwork and centralized operations with e-government processes that are driving initiatives for transparent governance, processes which are providing citizens with direct access to government projects. In doing so, it describes the dynamics behind EMEA's Good Governance for Development (GfD) Initiative, an effort that uses technology to improve the quality and reduce the complexity of government administration. It explains how this initiative can benefit project managers working in the EMEA region.
