Action Plan 3

  • Number of Commitments: 59
  • Policy Area Focus: Not specified

France’s third action plan touches on more topic areas and includes more institutions than any previous action plan. However, there was a lack of meaningful dialogue with civil society during the co-creation process, and most of the 59 commitments have unclear potential for results or lack sufficient detail to be assessed. To revitalize the OGP process, the government could approach implementation of commitments with greater ambition than written in the plan and in greater collaboration with civil society.

France’s third action plan contains 59 commitments. It carries over topics from its previous action plan, such as citizen engagement in environmental policy, lobbying transparency, procurement transparency, and aid transparency. It also covers new areas, such as transparency of COVID-19 funding and citizen participation in health and education policy. The government took a conscious choice to have a broad plan, that would “initiate and support a cultural change within the public administration”. More

OGP Global Report Data

The data below is drawn from the 2019 OGP Global Report. You can view and learn more about the report here.

Selected Dimensions of Open Government

This section captures how each OGP member can play a leadership role, based on IRM-based findings and third-party scores. This list does not cover all of open government and OGP members are not required to take any action.

Action implications

These are recommendations on the role that each OGP member might play in each policy area. The recommendations are derived from a combination of the IRM-based findings and third-party scores.

IRM-based findings

Reflect the performance of commitments in a particular policy area, as assessed by the IRM.

 

(NC) No Commitments
(CA) Commitment(s) in the policy area.
(IR) IRM-Reviewed: At least one IRM-assessed commitment.
(C) Was Complete: At least one commitment was substantially or fully completed.
(A) Was Ambitious: At least one commitment with moderate or transformative potential impact.
(ER) Showed Early Results: At least one commitment opened government in a “Major” or “Outstanding” way.

Third-party scores

Reflect “real-world” performance, i.e., performance outside of the OGP framework. Scores are comprised of various indicators collected by respected organizations.
