The world’s population has been increasing as every year passes by, and Governments across the world face a stupendous challenge of governing each country. These challenges include providing proper sanitation facilities, efficient disaster management techniques, effective resource allocation and management, etc. Crowdsourcing methodologies, which empower the common man to provide valuable information for better decision making, have gained prominence recently to tackle several challenges faced by several governments. In this paper, we introduce a crowdsourcing-based platform that makes use of information provided by the common man for better governance. We illustrate how this platform can be used in several instances to attend to the problems faced by people.
