Sweden End-of-Term Report 2016-2018

In 2019, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for third’s action plan. The report covers the full action plan implementation period of December 2016 through 30 June 2018.

In Sweden, the IRM researcher Alina Östling’s report’s findings are summarized below:

Sweden’s third action plan led to greater access to public service information as well as the publication of datasets through the Digital First programme. However, commitments to improve foreign aid transparency and to create dialogue with civil society were less impactful. Future action plans could improve with the inclusion of more ambitious commitments and wider consultations during development and implementation.

And in Swedish:

Sveriges tredje handlingsplan ledde till ökad tillgång till offentlig information samt publicering av data inom ramen för programmet ”Digitalt först”. Åtagandena om förbättrad öppenhet och dialog med det civila samhället inom biståndssektorn var dock mindre effektiva. Mer ambitiösa åtaganden och bredare samråd under utveckling och genomförande av framtida handlingsplaner är önskvärt.

The report is available in English and Swedish below. The two-week public comment period closed on 6 February 2019. No comments were received.
