'''PolicyAtlas''' is a non-partisan project to develop a user-contributed encyclopedia of public policy solutions. The goal of the PolicyAtlas is to improve the information available to all levels of public policymakers, thereby leading to the adoption and design of superior public policies and better lives for all who are governed. More information can be found on our [[Policy_Atlas:About|About]] page.
PolicyAtlas soft launched recently with a blog post written by [http://www.reilly.nyc Neil Reilly] on the [http://thegovlab.org/introducing-policyatlas GovLab Observatory]. Follow @PolicyAtlas and contact us on:
====Project Objectives====
Ultimately, PolicyAtlas seeks to become the world's most useful and widely available reference for public policy. Relying on policy students and volunteer wiki editors, PolicyAtlas is the first attempt at a policy “catalog,” or an organized gateway through which policymakers would identify policy solutions that meet their goals and find links to more information about them ("the Atlas"). The Atlas is organized by policy area (e.g., "Education policy") and goals within that public policy area (e.g., "Policies to increase student attendance rates"). A prototype/sample of the type of content envisioned policy can be found on the [[Driverless car allowances]] page.  ====Policy Areas====Categories of public policy that are currently being developed or are envisioned to be featured in the Atlas include:*Agriculture*Economic*'''[[:Category:Education|Education]]''' ({{PAGESINCAT:Education}} policies)*Energy*Environment*Governance*Health*'''[[:Category:Public Finance|Public Finance]]''' ({{PAGESINCAT:Public_Finance}} policies)*'''[[:Category:Transportation|Transportation]]''' ({{PAGESINCAT:Transportation}} policies)
