Joint Fact Sheet: The U.S.-UK Partnership for Global Development

Linked to this, the U.S. and UK worked with seven other countries to establish the Open Government Partnership (OGP) in 2011. The U.S. currently chairs the OGP with Brazil, and the UK will take over the U.S. co-chair in April 2012. This innovative partnership between governments and civil society commits governments to new levels of transparency and accountability to result in better responsiveness and services for their citizens. Over 50 countries have already signed up.
