Open Government in Latin America

image of Open Government in Latin America

Latin American governments have embarked upon substantial open government reforms in recent years. Working with the Open Government Partnership (OGP), progress has been made. The OECD - as an official multilateral partner organisation of the OGP - has conducted a regional stocktaking exercise of open government strategies and practices. Its main findings are reflected in this report, allowing Latin American countries to compare and benchmark against good international practice.

Open government policies and initiatives in Peru

This chapter assesses the capacity of the government of Peru to produce, implement and evaluate high quality open government policies. The chapter illustrates the country’s strong legal framework for transparency and access to information and identifies progress that has been made within the institutional framework, in particular with the establishment of the Permanent Multi-Sectoral Commision in 2013. The chapter then recommends developing a clear open data action plan to link the already highly developed access to information agenda with the open data agenda and expanding efforts to include local governments and institutions such as Parliament in open government policy making.
