Latvia Mid-Term Progress Report 2015-2017

In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the progress report for Latvia’s second action plan. The report covers the development and first year of implementation of the action plan, from July 2015 through June 2016.

The IRM researcher in Latvia, Zinta Miezaine, summarizes the findings of the report below:

NGOs played a major role in shaping Latvia’s second action plan, which includes important commitments on open data, public integrity, and participation. However, many commitments were taken from existing long-term policy plans. Moving forward, a broader and more diverse range of participants in the OGP process could expand the reach of future action plans.

And in Latvian:

Nevalstiskajām organizācijām bija nozīmīga loma, gatavojot otro rīcības plānu, kurā ietvertas nozīmīgas apņemšanās atvērto datu, pārvaldes atbildīguma un līdzdalības jomās. Tomēr daudzas apņemšanās ir daļa no jau esošiem ilgtermiņa plāniem. Paplašinot APP procesā iesaistīto cilvēku loku, paplašinātos  APP ietekme.

The version of the report for public comment is available in English and Latvian below. The two-week public comment closed 29 May 2017.
