Ghana Design Report 2017-2019 – For Public Comment
In 2020, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Design Report for Ghana’s third action plan (2017-2019). The report covers the development of the action plan and the design of its commitments.
In Ghana, the IRM researcher Titilope Ajayi’s findings are summarized below:
“Ghana’s third action plan aimed to promote access to information and civic participation to prevent corruption in different public policy areas. As in previous action plans, the passing of the Right to Information bill continues to be a centerpiece for the OGP agenda in the country. The co-creation process gained political momentum in 2017, improving the role of the national Steering Committee. However, in the forthcoming action plan the government needs to invest disproportionately in engagement after feedback is collected. This will ensure that adequate spaces for iterative dialogue are created to discuss commitment proposals and their design.”
The version of the report for public comment is available below. The two-week public comment period closed 30 June 2020.
