The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a voluntary, international forum of countries working to be more open, accountable and responsive to citizens. The Government of Jamaica (GOJ) became a member of the OGP in December 2016. Participation in the OGP requires countries to deliver a National Action Plan (NAP) developed with public consultation with civil society with commitments which advance the OGP values of access to information, civic participation and public accountability.
The GOJ has prepared Jamaica’s first National Action Plan under the OGP and is sharing the NAP with stakeholders and the public for review and feedback.
The OGP NAP will be available for review and feedback for the period from Monday, January 3, 2022 to Wednesday, January 19, 2022. You may provide your feedback and comments on the OGP NAP in the space provided on the MOFPS website or by email to either of the following addresses:
We thank you in advance for your participation in the OGP process in Jamaica, and wish you the best for the New Year.
