More about OGP
and the Action Plan

Open Government Partnership

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a multilateral initiative in which 63 governments work together with citizens to promote transparency, fight corruption, and use technology as an enabler of that openness.

Open Government means to advance a new governance model. It requires a process of commitment, collaboration and co-responsibility from both the government and civil society.

In Mexico, OGP has become a platform for dialogue where government in collaboration with civil society can assume commitments that can transform the lives of people.

Action Plan 2013 — 2015

Mexico’s 2013-2015 Action Plan shows the country’s commitment with Open Government. It was developed thanks to the leadership of the Tripartite Technical Secretariat composed by the Mexican Federal Government, the Federal Institute for Access to Information and Data Protection (IFAI) and the Civil Society Coordination Committee. This Plan is the result of an open a collaborative process between civil society organizations, academia, entrepreneurs, experts and public officials; and demonstrates that society’s participation in public affairs allows us to respond to civic demands and generate impact with high public value.

The 2013 - 2015 Action Plan is composed of 26 commitments, within five main key areas of development for the nation:

  • Citizen-centric government
  • Open and Participatory Spending
  • Open Data for Development
  • Civic Engagement and Empowerment
  • Natural resources governance

As Co-chairs of the Open Government Partnership this 2014, and future Chairs of the Initiative, Mexico assumes the commitment to promote the principles of open government with leadership and global responsibility.
