Open Government Partnership


Open Government Partnership


The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international initiative that secures commitments from national and sub-national governments to promote corruption deterrence and empower citizens rights. The Open Government Partnership was launched in 2011 and has since grown to include 79 countries around the world. It provides a platform for governmental reformers, both inside and outside of office, to help develop policies that promote transparency. The relationship between government and civil society is paramount – a healthy relationship between these two will lead to a healthy nation. The populous of any country is less likely to go into public service, or even participate in basic civic acts such as voting, if they believe that their government is corrupt. Eradicating corruption in all levels of government is crucial if you wish to draw people out of cynicism and to service. The Open Government Partnership is a pledge to do such.
