Open Response | Open Recovery - An Open Forum

Open Response | Open Recovery - An Open Forum



The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has stopped part of the world, causing extreme pressure on various sectors of society, both public and private. The fundamental values of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), namely accountability, transparency, inclusivity, and responsiveness are vital as countries move forward in responding to recovery.

It was in this context that OGP created a campaign, Open Response | Open recovery: an open forum that allows its 78 countries and 20 local members, thousands of members of civil society and several multilateral partners to share the resources and initiatives they are creating as the response to the pandemic.
