New app helps measure participation
There is a new tool for measuring participation in General Assembly committees. The Process Observation Web Application (POWA) is in its initial roll out at GA222. Process Observation is measuring who participated, when, and if there are changes when a committee shifts its practice. The GACOR (General Assembly Committee on Representation) began experimenting in 2012 to find ways to measure participation in assembly committees. This new app allows more observers to take part and makes process observation more accessible.
