GANA Pienso

Gana Pienso (lit. I win I think) is a platform created in 2016 by the Government of Nariño, in order to create a link between the administration and citizenry thanks to which the citizens can meet, comment, opine, propose and vote on projects that the Government wants to develop and publish on the platform. It is expected that the departmental government will comply with the proposals and votes of the citizens through this platform. Gana Pienso developed as one of the components of the Open Government program of the department of Nariño - GANA, which seeks to ensure that citizens have full knowledge of the information, management and occurrences in the department, thus avoiding situations of corruption. The Government has been one of the pioneers in the implementation of this type of program.
