Action Plan 4

  • Number of Commitments: 62
  • Policy Area Focus: Not specified

The co-creation process for Spain’s fourth action plan represents an ambitious step to continue advancing the open government agenda in the country. The plan has a strategic approach that integrates historical civil society demands by reforming the legal framework for access to information and public integrity systems.

Spain’s fourth action plan contains nine commitments that encompass different initiatives at the national level and are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. Additionally, the plan includes 53 open government initiatives from Spain’s 19 autonomous communities and cities and one from the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces, all of which address the thematic areas established at the national level.

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.
