Current Action Plan

Action Plan 4

  • Number of Commitments: 13
  • Policy Area Focus: Not specified

The fourth action plan brings several lessons since it was developed during the pandemic and in an environment of polarization between the government and civil society. The plan achieved early results in nine of the thirteen commitments, four of them with significant or exceptional achievements. There is evidence of an increase in spaces for citizen participation and improvements in transparency and access to information, as well as more actionable dialogues between civil society and the government. There are still areas for improvement for a fifth plan, such as giving greater specificity and attention to citizen participation mechanisms, incorporating the accountability component in future commitments, and strengthening dialogue and trust between civil society and the government.

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.
