Open Government Partnership Reforms

MENA governments – especially in Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, and Tunisia – have undertaken important reform initiatives to modernize their public administrations and pass access to information laws.

Several have applied to join the Open Government Partnership (OGP), an international

initiative that aims to leverage capabilities of new technologies to strengthen participatory governance and fight corruption.

Further actions are required to sustain this progress and implement open government principles that foster civil society collaboration with government.

This project will assist governments in developing action plans to improve management and governance activities such as:
budgeting, human resources management, regulatory practices, public integrity, public procurement, digital government, open government and data, risk management, and innovations.

By focusing on public governance areas and creating inclusive economies and societies, this project will guide governments to benchmark their countries’ progress on public sector reforms at the national and regional levels, and to compare them against international standards.

Additionally, it will create the first MENA long-term strategic partnership and governance network for policy dialogue and exchange of good practices.

Finally, it will deliver ad hoc policy recommendations to advance public sector reform agendas in specific sectors at the national or regional level with a focus on policies pertaining to women and youth.

Success will be measured on the basis of increased engagement between civil society, the private sector, and governments on open government initiatives; expanded utilization of information by civil society; the implementation of policies, initiatives, and laws; government participation with other international partners in the new OECD Observatory of Civic Space; and enhanced public perception of open governance.
