Following the planned dynamics in the preparation of the Fifth National Action Plan for Open Government Partnership 2021-2023, on 5 November 2020, a two-hour working meeting was held. This was an e-workshop on the priority area “Preventing corruption and promoting good governance”.
The meeting was organized in order to find ideas and solutions through an open discussion, primarily about the problems and commitments of NAP4 for OGP 2018 – 2020 that are not met or are partially met and the need to transfer them into the new action plan. At the same time, the meeting opened a discussion on the results obtained through the questionnaire for evaluation of the implementation of the commitments of NAP4 for OGP and the need for their inclusion in the new NAP5.
Facilitators of the working meeting were Misha Popovic from the Institute for Democracy IDSCS and Sefer Selimi from Democracy Lab.
The Republic of North Macedonia is part of the Global Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative, which is an international platform within which governments and civil society organizations strive for governments to be more open and accountable to their citizens. In accordance with the commitments undertaken by all countries that have joined this initiative, so far the Government of RNM has adopted four action plans (in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018). According to the time frame, in the next six months, our country will work on the preparation of the fifth National Action Plan for OGP for the period 2021-2023, a process that provides for the involvement of all relevant stakeholders.
