Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, South Africa and Tanzania are among more than 50 countries pursuing an “Open Government” through greater transparency, citizen engagement, and accountability mechanisms. This was illustrated by these countries’ decision to join the Open Government Partnership (OGP) and their commitment to develop National Action Plans under the OGP.
These African countries began sharing knowledge on the development of their OGP Action Plans in March 2012. Some of these Action Plans were presented at the OGP Annual meeting in Brasilia in April, 2012.
This videoconference is organized for Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, South Africa and Tanzania to discuss next steps to implement and monitor their Action Plans, and to reflect on the outcomes of the OGP meeting in Brasilia.
