Measuring Open Government From the Citizens' Perspective
The session will begin with an introduction and presentation of the Open Government Index 2015 and its conceptual framework. Following this, a diverse panel of three speakers will engage in a discussion centered around three topics: 1) the demand for the creation of a comprehensive and coherent set of open government performance indicators based on the perceptions and experiences of citizens; 2) identifying the ways in which these indicators can be used to inform policy dialogue and assessments, and evaluate progress to meet SDG goals; and 3) to foster a productive discussion of the strengths and limitations of these types of indicators in general and the Open Government Index in particular.

The World Bank’s Open Data Readiness Assessments (ODRAs) is one such tried methodology.

Inducing Innovation in the Public Sector
Even though public sector innovation has become an international trend, in the stricter sense we know that there is still much to learn on the subject. This session will address the contributing factors in promoting innovation as well as the necessary conditions that are key to ensure that good ideas are put into practice and can endure. This will be done by discussing the characteristics, achievements and limitations of three different initiatives that have been developed to promote public sector innovation in the Latinamerican region. By zooming in on problem definition, innovation development and adoption in these three initiatives, the session will attempt to delve into what ingredients can yield effective and durable innovation in the public sector.

Book presentation: La Alianza para el Gobierno Abierto en México, una Visión desde la Sociedad Civil
México es uno de los ocho países fundadores de la para Open Government Partnership 
(OGP). Como pionera, la experiencia de la Alianza para el Gobierno Abierto 1(AGA) en 
México tuvo simultáneamente el reto y la oportunidad de definir un modelo propio de 
funcionamiento. Esta experiencia permitió explorar y experimentar con distintas formas 
de organización vinculación que definieron una nueva relación entre sociedad civil y 
gobierno. Este libro recupera la experiencia mexicana  desde la perspectiva de ocho 
organizaciones de la sociedad civil y tuvo como fuentes una revisión documental, 
entrevistas a profundidad e investigación electrónica complementaria para el cotejo de 
aspectos  puntuales recabados en los testimoniales.

Conditions for an Open Governance: Measuring How Countries Implement OGP Basic Principles
Transparency International has tested an Open Governance Scorecard in 5 pilot countries (Ghana, Indonesia, Peru, United Kingdom and Ukraine) as a complementary assessment on how OGP principles embodies in regulation, policy and government structure, i.e. an enabling environment that could move forward OGP’s ambition and commitment at national level. The Scorecard provides tools which set open governance standards, track the progress, and most importantly assess them both in-law level and in practice. The Scorecard will be presented with participation from pilot countries.

Lever of Change? Learning to Make OGP effective at the Country Level
For this session the audience will be divided into 5 regional groups: Africa, Europe, North America, South America, and Southeast Asia. A researcher from each region will summarize the ways pro-reform actors have leveraged OGP to advance open government there, then facilitate a group conversation to reflect on lessons for other stakeholders. Later, the audience will be reorganized into small groups (civil society, government officials, funders, and private sector/other) for a recap of the previous conversation and a new set of reflections.

Implementing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda: The Open Government Guide Special Edition
This session focuses on the special edition of the Open Government Guide and explores how an open government approach can spur progress across the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Many OGP countries are already tackling these challenges by promoting transparency and accountability, empowering citizens and civil society, fighting corruption, and harnessing new technologies in their national action plans. Government and civil society panelists will showcase some of these examples and invite open government champions to build on these ideas with their own suggestions of open government policies that can help advance the SDGs.
