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 strategies and governance frameworks in Latin America

Based on the results of the OECD Survey on Open Government in Latin American, this chapter evaluates the open government strategies and governance frameworks of eleven Latin American countries. It analyses open government achievements and challenges against the background of the creation of the Open Government Partnership in 2011 and provides a picture of the institutions in charge of open government. It finds that countries from the region have made great progress in defining and implementing open government strategies and programmes. But it also identifies the need to strengthen horizontal policy alignment and institutional leadership.
