Environment and Climate

Introduction and Overview

Open government advances progress on climate action through greater access to data, transparency, and public participation in the creation and implementation of climate policies in OGP countries.

Open data allows for more informed policy development, the ability to connect cutting-edge research with key decision-makers, and vulnerable countries to build the capacity to address climate risks over the short- and long-term.

As a core OGP priority, climate commitments also have enormous potential to accelerate implementation of both the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
