Current Action Plan
Action Plan 1
- Number of Commitments: 12
- Policy Area Focus: Not specified
Most of the 12 commitments in Senegal’s first action plan focus on enhancing access to information and civic participation in budgets and public policies. As civil society and private sector organizations seek to consolidate their role in the formulation and implementation of public policies and assessment of government action, the OGP action plan offers a purposeful, and sustainable consultation framework. It also connects Senegalese reformers with best practices worldwide. Looking ahead, Senegal can continue to strengthen their modestly ambitious plan by defining clear objectives, baseline and progress indicators, and specifying the role of civil society in implementation.
Senegal’s first action plan is structured around transparency in public management; public service delivery; and citizen participation. It provides an open government lens to on-going reforms aligned with the country’s economic and social development priorities, with the African Peer Review Mechanism and programmes supported by international development partners. Specifically, the plan seeks to enhance access to information regulation and transparency in sectors such as fisheries, to open budgets, to strengthen the anti-corruption legal and institutional framework, to improve electronic administration and access to public services, to ensure diverse participation, especially by women, youth, and persons with disabilities, in environmental issues and in other public policies.
Why Open Budgets, Contracts, and Ownership are Critical to Delivering Public Services in Africa
Now is the time for governments to invest in reforms that can accelerate and improve how they deliver quality education, healthcare, water and sanitation, and supportive infrastructure.

The Low-Tech Way to Engage Citizens in Lockdown
It seems odd to promote citizen participation at a time of lockdown. By early April 2020, “more than 3.9 billion people, or half of the world's population, [had] been asked or ordered to stay at home by their governments to prevent the spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus.”
