Chile’s third action plan has a broader thematic scope, with limited progress during the first year of implementation. Despite its broad participation, civil society influence continues to be an area to improve.

The government promoted dialogue during the co-creation period, allowing for broad participation through sessions in five cities outside Santiago. However, CSOs believe the action plan mostly reflects the government’s priorities and proposals. Both agree there is a need to strengthen the co-creation and implementation processes by clearly defining methodologies and procedures, especially when it comes to decision-making.


Chile’s third action plan lacked ambitious commitments, with only two coded as having transformative potential impact. During the first year of the plan, less than half of the commitments were substantially implemented.

IRM Recommendations

  1. Coordinate, in an effective and timely manner, civil society proposals so that they have a real possibility to be included in the next action plan
  2. Strengthen and increase the number of commitments relevant to natural resources, social policy and education
  3. Increase the number of commitments related to new initiatives, as opposed to focusing on ongoing efforts, or areas that are a key part of the OGP process
  4. Strengthen the scope of new tools, instruments and means of communication so that more interested groups can access and use them
  5. Include commitments related to the Sustainable Development Goals
