The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) launches Gobernarte 2015 that will be named after “Eduardo Campos” Award in this third edition, the former governor of Pernambuco who died last year, in recognition of his significant contribution to the innovation in the public administration in Brazil and in the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Gobernarte is aimed at identifying, rewarding, documenting, and disseminating innovative initiatives implemented by the subnational governments in the region. This time, experiences at the municipal level will be awarded in the following categories:


-Cities and Big data:

Initiatives that, through the generation, analysis, and sharing of Big Data, have contributed to smart city management and improved citizens’ lives.


-Cities and Registry of Persons:

Initiatives that have contributed to narrowing the identity gap in children, indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants and other vulnerable populations.

Proposals can be submitted by municipal or local governments (third administrative level) in IDB borrowing member countries. Potential alliances with the national government or other subnational governments, in alliance with civil society, academia, or the private sector will be allowed. You can find the terms and conditions and all the competition’s information at www.iadb.org/gobernarte.

In 2014, government initiatives in alliance with the private sector and civil society received an award for having increased the access to vulnerable populations to public services through digital media. The four winners were governments at the state and municipal level from Brazil, Colombia and Mexico (more details).
