Open Government Partnership (OGP) Workshop
Start Date: Apr 16, 2013
End Date: Apr 16, 2013
Venue: Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West, Western Cape Province
Description: Members of the media are invited to an Open Government Partnership Workshop (OGP) to be hosted by the Deputy Minister for Public Service and Administration Ms Ayanda Dlodlo. The workshop will also be attended by Community Development Workers (CDWs) in the province.
The OGP aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. To achieve these objectives, OGP brings together governments and civil society organisations as true partners. OGP is overseen by a Steering Committee composed of governments and civil society organizations in equal numbers, a unique model that embodies the goal of civic participation. Its chairs are also drawn from both sectors.
In compliance with the OGP requirements, South Africa has developed a country action plan with identified seven commitments as concrete steps that government will embark on towards addressing the grand challenge of Service Delivery.
The country action plan, which was developed in consultation with civil society organisations from across the country and citizen inputs from the National Development Plan consultation processes, identified service delivery as our country’s grand challenge. Our government is committed to walking alongside its citizens to develop
The workshop will also serve as a platform to empower CDWs with further information that will enable them to take government services to the communities.
