Measurement and Evaluation Tool for Citizen Engagement and e-Participation 

 

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) developed this self-assessment questionnaire in response to an emerging need for stronger and deeper participation in citizen engagement by all stakeholders, as identified in the Rio+20 Summit Report, Realizing the Future We Want for All, and the work of the UN Task Team on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

 

 

Engaging citizens is beneficial to governments throughout the public policy process: i) at the early stages to enhance public problem definition and to identify acceptable policy options; ii) through the implementation stages by facilitating dialogue to support policy inclusiveness and iii) to receive feedback while monitoring and evaluating public policy programmes and their outcomes, which is key to continuous improvements in the delivery of public goods and services.

 

The online version of METEP is available here and its questionnaire is also available in Russian and Arabic.
