Since its founding in 2011, OGP has grown to 75 countries and 150 local jurisdictions that work alongside thousands of civil society organizations. Every two years, each member submits an action plan co-created with civil society that outlines concrete commitments to enhance transparency, accountability and public participation in government.

Local Members

Local governments are closest to their citizens, resulting in innovative and ambitious open government reforms. Whether a state, prefecture or municipality, local government is in charge of delivering essential public services.

That’s why OGP Local was launched in 2016, building partnerships between local governments and civil society organizations to make governments more open, inclusive, participatory and accountable to their citizens.
