To join OGP, members must meet eligibility criteria, identify a lead ministry and commit to creating action plans, containing concrete reforms – in consultation with civil society.
Action Plan Cycle
Action plans are at the core of participation in OGP. They are the product of an open co-creation process in which government and civil society work together to create ambitious reforms.
The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) tracks the progress of OGP members, providing public accountability on the implementation of commitments. Monitoring progress promotes strong accountability between member governments and citizens.

Current issues being addressed in OGP include access to justice, gender and inclusion, digital governance, public service delivery, right to information, protection of civic space and natural resources and corruption.
