About the Open Government Partnership
The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. It was formally launched in September 2011. To become a member of OGP, participating countries must:
1. Endorse a high-level Open Government Declaration;
2. Deliver a country action plan developed with public consultation; and
3. Commit to independent reporting on country progress going forward….
This project was supported through a grant provided by the Center for Research and Policy Making in the framework of the EU funded project Advocacy for Open Government – civil society agenda-setting and monitoring of country action plans.The main goal of the project is the actualization of the goals and opportunities offered by the OGP initiative and to serve as the foundation for the establishment of a
regional network for the participation and monitoring of the implementation of the OGP AP 2016 -2018 for the CSOs in Pelagonia region…..
