Good governance in Afghanistan and Pakistan – Oxfam Novib

Citizens First is a programme organised by Oxfam Novib contributing to human security and good governance in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Its purpose is empowering civilians and civil society to engage constructively with the government, through using evidence-based advocacy. The project has been operational for four years and will finish at the end of 2016.

An interactive website was created to be able to show the results in an appealing way to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs:
