Open Gov Guide (2023)


The Open Gov Guide is the go-to resource for officials, civil society representatives, and other actors looking for recommendations, examples, and resources on open government. The 2023 version is also a “how-to” guide for the Partnership-wide Challenge, which aims to improve ambition in priority areas identified in OGP’s 2023-2028 strategy. The OGP Support Unit will continue updating the guide in line with these priorities.

The OGP Support Unit would like to acknowledge the support of its partner organizations, whose expertise shaped the Open Gov Guide.
