Open Government and the Escazú Agreement

Gobierno abierto y el Acuerdo de Escazú

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) represents an important platform for advancing the implementation of the Escazú Agreement, which aims to guarantee the rights of access to environmental information, public participation in environmental decision-making, access to justice in environmental affairs, and equality and non-discrimination.

OGP presents an opportunity to implement the Agreement by convening relevant stakeholders and offering institutional tools and resources, such as action plans, peer exchanges, and regional events.

This page lists resources to help reformers achieve synergy between OGP and the Escazú Agreement—from research publications to blog posts. These materials include policy recommendations, commitment examples, and partners that can support implementation. Additional resources can be found on OGP’s environment and climate page.
