The OGP Trust Fund supports a range of activities that strengthen the co-creation process. This includes activities that seek to:

  • Develop an ambitious OGP action plan with potentially transformative commitments.
  • Strengthen the multi-stakeholder forum to improve ongoing dialogue and quality of engagement between government and civil society.
  • Align OGP action plans with national/local development priorities, including topics not covered in previous OGP plans.
  • Build capacity for open government approaches (transparency, accountability, citizen engagement, etc.) and ownership of the co-creation process.
  • Provide technical support to strengthen the quality of commitments across thematic priorities.
  • Help local civil society actors to build effective coalitions, improve their ability for strategic advocacy, and coordination of their activities.
  • Broaden base to engage new groups, including marginalized groups and local/grassroots actors, as well as stakeholders from new parts of the country or regions.
  • Raise awareness of OGP and open government issues through traditional (tv, radio, print) and social media campaigns to increase visibility and expand civic engagement.
  • Take actions to meet OGP’s Participation and Co-Creation standards.
