Data: A Gender Perspective
This panel will have a discussion about the relevance of gender mainstreaming in access to information. That is, to analyze why it is important that the information generated by the state is disaggregated at least by sex to meet the differentiated impacts on men and women in public policies, legislation and court rulings. UNWomen will talk about the experience they have had in Mexico; Inmujeres will talk about successful efforts and obstacles, while GIRE will discuss about its experience on access to public information related to reproductive rights. Data 4 will show the ways in which information should be systematized so that it can be useful.

To what Extent is Open Data Contributing to Open Government in Asia and Africa?
A critical stock take of the state of open data contributing to open government in Asia and Africa, building on the Web Foundation's 17 country study as well as current phase of research focusing on Asia and Africa. We ask - first, what have we learned of state of open data in Asia and Africa (a broad question but one we will ask based on the Open Data Barometer as well as other studies), and second, to what extent does this contribute to open government? What are the challenges and recommendations? There is an assumption that a) open data is good and b) open data contributes to open government. We want to explore both assumptions and the links between them. This will be a critical piece on the benefits and challenges of open data contributing to open government. Which countries might be leaders in this, which might be stragglers?

Strengthening Civil Society: Moving from Paper to Action International
The Open Governance Guide has a new draft chapter—developed with the help of the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law—that is focused on protecting and promoting civil society, with illustrative commitments and recommendations. Adoption of such commitments can lead to a stronger civil society that can more effectively collaborate with government, including on implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and better support the work of the OGP. The session aims to explore how stakeholders can most effectively promote the adoption and implementation of commitments in support of civil society.

The promotion for OGP Implementation in Difficult Contexts
Over the last few years, the climate for civil society in some member state of OGP has deteriorated to the point where it seriously threatens the ability of civil society organizations (CSOs) to engage effectively in the OGP process. Crackdown on independent civil society has had profound negative effects on the ability of NGOs and citizen activists to promote open government. As a result of such pressure, sizable number of independent NGOs working on open government issues have had to suspend their activities. Conditions in this countries seriously threaten the integrity of OGP and raise important concerns about the government’s commitment to the Open Government Declaration.
