Netherlands Progress Report 2013-2014
In January and February 2015, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) will present for public comment 8 progress reports of countries whose first official year of OGP action plan implementation began on 1 July 2013 and closed on 30 June 2014. The IRM reports cover implementation of the Action Plan for each country during this first year.
In the Netherlands, Frans Jorna, professor of Governance at Saxion University of Applied Sciences who authored the report, summarized the findings:
The Dutch action plan focused on initiatives to enhance access and accountability through online tools. While a number of commitments were potentially transformative, the lack of specificity of the action plan made progress and impact difficult to assess. Moving forward, the Dutch government should work with civil society to create a measurable and ambitious action plan.
