The Open Government Partnership is a multilateral initiative for securing concrete commitments from governments around the world to promote transparency, fight against corruption and strengthen governance.Pakistan initiated the joining process of OGP with the approval of the Cabinet in December, 2016. In order to secure full membership, Pakistan needs to develop an OGP National Action Plan (NAP). To fulfill this requirement, EAD organized a National Workshop on OGP on 27th July 2017.
Measures to increase fiscal transparency were recommended by the Foundation for inclusion in Pakistan’s National Action Plan for OGP. These draw on the findings of the global Open Budget Survey conducted every two years, with the Foundation leading the research in Pakistan.
