OGP Trust Fund

OGP, with the support of development partners and working together with the World Bank, established the OGP Multi-Donor Trust Fund (or the Trust Fund) to support World Bank client countries and local entities that participate in OGP, or intend to become eligible to participate in the OGP. Trust Fund financing will be a resource in creating or implementing national or local led commitments with potentially high impact that lead to increasing government transparency, improving accountability and strengthening citizen engagement and government responsiveness. The Trust Fund will also enable peer learning between OGP members, and the expansion and dissemination of knowledge around the effectiveness and impact of open government reforms.

With the support of Agence Française de Développement, the OGP Trust Fund is pleased to announce the first Call for Proposals to strengthen the participation and co-creation of national/local action plans in 2018. Click a link below to learn how to apply.
