Description

Commitment 6: Build Open Government
Resiliency
We will build political support across National, County Government, Civil Society,
Private sector, Pan African Institutions and other OGP participating Countries in
Africa to share skills, knowledge, resources and expertise.
Objective
Ensure that the Open Government Partnership initiative in Kenya and Africa is resilient,
continuing its unique role as a platform for co-creation, dialogue and collaboration
between governments, parliaments, private sector and civil society.
Status quo
Support system for Open Government is currently unstructured or non-existent within
and across African Countries. As noted by the Support Unit, Open Government in Africa
mostly revolves around individual PoC’s and lacks whole-of-government high level
political support.
Ambition
Open Government Partnership is a unique platform that could de-risk the implementation
of the Big 4 Agenda, consolidate democratic gains and bring into existence, the values
of Agenda 2063 that seeks to ensure that Africa remains a cohesive Union, not only of
member states but that of peoples.
