OGP 2019 Annual Report
As for many organizations, the global impact of COVID-19 has altered the way the Open Government Partnership (OGP) will achieve its mission. To ensure the fundamental values of accountability, transparency, inclusivity, and responsiveness are at the forefront of how governments meet the needs of their citizens, we must restore mutual trust between government and citizenry — underpinned by openness.
Open government values are essential as we move from response through to recovery and tackle new challenges such as ensuring that large-scale procurement of medical supplies or massive stimulus packages and safety net programs achieve their intended goals, while protecting civic space and human rights.
This 2019 Annual Report was drafted in the midst of a pandemic — a reality we cannot ignore. So while we look back on the success of the past year, we also look forward to how we will apply the lessons we have learned, how we will adjust to meet current contexts and how we will continue to drive impact across our initiatives.
