Portrait of Joseph Foti

Joseph Foti

Joseph directs the Independent Reporting Mechanism of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), which annually assesses national performance on OGP commitments. Prior to his work at OGP, he worked as a Senior Associate for the Access Initiative, a network led by the World Resources Institute (WRI). During his time at WRI, Joseph helped develop a number of indicator-based toolkits to assess access to information, public participation, and access to justice for matters affecting the environment. In particular, he led work in Latin America, work on poverty and open government and citizen participation in climate change adaptation policy. He was the lead author on a number of papers and reports, including “Voice and Choice Opening the Door to Environmental Democracy” and “A Seat at the Table: Including the Poor in Decisions for Development and Environment.” Joseph began his career as a public school teacher.
