Citizen’s Connect is an initiative that gives residents of Bhubaneswar an opportunity to be a part of shaping the city’s future by co-creating solutions for the Smarter Bhubaneswar. This is the start of a process that will help Bhubaneswar’s citizens articulate a shared vision for economic activity, sustainability and inclusiveness. The citizen engagement strategy will be organized as- DECIDE | DETAIL | DISSEMINATE | DISCUSS- to connect with citizens during the entire plan/project cycle- identification, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of a plan/project cycle

Final proposals and projects will be placed for citizen’s information. This strategy will not only create an ongoing dialogue mechanism but will also strengthen the citizen participation during implementation phase.
