Action Plan for the OGP Phase II in the Water Sector (FY 2014/15 – 2015/16)
The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a global initiative that aims at promoting transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption and encourage use of new technologies to improve governance. 8 founding members formally launched the OGP in New York on 20th September 2011, namely: Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, South Africa, United Kingdom and Unites States. A multi-stakeholder International Steering Committee comprised of Government and civil society representatives oversees the OGP. One of the major benefits of OGP is to improve service delivery and make Governments more responsible and accountable to their citizens. Given the benefits of this initiative, Tanzania declared its intention to join OGP during the launching meeting. The decision to join OGP is an important step to complement the Government on going efforts to strengthen good governance across all sectors.
