Ukraine join Open Government Partnership
On September 20th, as world leaders gather in New York for the opening of the United Nations 66th General Assembly, the Open Government Partnership will formally launch with a series of high-level meetings highlighting the transformative nature of open governance.
Events will include day-long multi-stakeholder discussion, "The Power of Open," that brings together governments, civil society, industry leaders, academics and the media for a series of panels and networking events focused on the role of openness in improving responsiveness, fostering accountability, creating efficiencies, promoting innovation and growth, fighting corruption, improving performance, and capturing dispersed knowledge in support of smarter policies. You can view the most current version of the "The Power of Open" agenda at the bottom of the page.
The Open Government Partnership is a new multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. In the spirit of multi-stakeholder collaboration, OGP is overseen by a steering committee of governments and civil society organizations.
To become a member of OGP, participating countries must embrace a high-level Open Government Declaration; deliver a country action plan developed with public consultation; and commit to independent reporting on their progress going forward.
