image of Digital Government Review of Colombia

This review analyses the shift from e-government to digital government in Colombia. It looks at the governance framework for digital government, the use of digital platforms and open data to engage and collaborate with citizens, conditions for a data-driven public sector, and policy coherence in a context of significant regional disparities. It provides concrete policy recommendations on how digital technologies and data can be harnessed for citizen-driven policy making and public service delivery.

Assessment and recommendations

Colombia is currently undergoing its most radical transformation process of the last 50 years. The peace process, and the resultant end to conflict, offers unrivalled opportunities to devise solutions to the country’s structural problems, such as unequal distribution of land, inclusion of displaced persons, marginalisation of certain communities, urbanisation of reclaimed land and economic development of its communities, to name a few. Expectations are that these opportunities will bring significant social, economic and development benefits in the next few years.
