OGP Community Briefing on OGP Global Summit and Summit for Democracy


Thanks for joining us!

On October 28, civil society leaders, government representatives, and key stakeholders came together to discuss how to leverage the upcoming Summit for Democracy and the 2021 OGP Global Summit to make progress in key areas, including fighting corruption and authoritarianism and promoting human rights.

The briefing featured practitioners from civil society and government who have experience linking global and country conversations, including through their OGP action plans.

The briefing also provided guidance on how to use forthcoming action plans for commitments that can be shared at the Summit for Democracy, strengthen existing commitments, and/ or embed accountability for implementation of new commitments made at the Summits. We also discussed ideas for how Summit activities can be used to generate support and accelerate implementation.
