Fiscal Openness

  • About


The aim of the OGP-GIFT FOWG is to support the formulation and promote the implementation of fiscal openness commitments made by Open Government Partnership (OGP) governments.

FOWG Objectives

  • Offer OGP members efficient and coordinated access to international good practices, tools, norms, assessments, and technical expertise on FO;
  • Support OGP members to implement their FO commitments, and develop even more ambitious FO goals and good practices including perhaps common/shared goals;
  • Motivate additional governments to become champions and models of FO.
