Multi-Stakeholder Forum

Category: Process | Back to Glossary

Regular dialogue between government and civil society is a core element of OGP participation. It builds trust, promotes joint problem-solving, and empowers civil society to influence the design, implementation, and monitoring of reforms.

The OGP Participation and Co-Creation Standards require all participating countries to establish a space for ongoing dialogue with participation from government, civil society, and other non-governmental representatives that meets at least every six months. Its basic rules on participation are public. OGP participating locals are also required to use a multi-stakeholder forum, defined as “a space for participation in the development and review of the action plan”, during the co-creation process.

See the OGP National Handbook or OGP Local Handbook for guidance on implementation.
