Dumitru Lazur

Dumitru Lazur is the co-founder of the online platform LaEtaj.md (Moldova).

LaEtaj.md counters the lack of transparency and accountability in the construction industry and state institutions by facilitating citizen engagement. LaEtaj.md uses open and paid databases and freedom of information act to make a crucial database on construction companies’ activity. It is open and accessible for re-use and helps citizens make informed decisions and purchases.

LaEtaj.md publishes detailed profiles of construction companies and their ongoing construction projects, including information on the owners, licenses, litigations, debts, criminal records, construction permits, project statuses and more. The information is gathered from six state-run open databases not indexed by web search engines and two paid databases (Companies House and Cadastre).
