Taking OGP Subnational
Since its launch, the OGP has achieved a rapid expansion in its breadth - from the 8 founding countries to its 65 members today - and has had considerable success in being a catalyst for open government reforms in national level governments. The next frontier for OGP is to deepen, by increasing the involvement of sub-national tiers of government. This session will explore past, present and future innovations in applying open government and the OGP at a devolved, federal or local level. The session will begin with lightning talks from four people leading innovations on subnational open government.
