Nigeria Design Report 2017-2019 – For Public Comment
In 2020, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Design Report for Nigeria’s first action plan (2017-2019). The report covers the development of the action plan and the design of its commitments.
In Nigeria, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:
“Nigeria’s first action plan leveraged ongoing efforts in the country to address important open government challenges like beneficial ownership, open contracting, and implementing the Freedom of Information Act. The thematic scope and ambition of this action plan has set a good foundation to learn and improve future action plans. Moving forward, the IRM recommends strengthening the institutional framework, inter-agency coordination, and engagement with civil society to support implementation of OGP action plans and deliver key reforms.”
