OGP was launched in 2011 to provide an international platform for domestic reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens. Since then, OGP has grown from 8 countries to the 69 participating countries. In all of these countries, government and civil society are working together to develop and implement ambitious open government reforms. For a country to become a member of the global OGP family, it has to fulfill four basic criteria outlined by the OGP Secretariat which include: Fiscal Transparency, Income and Assets Disclosure, Citizens Engagement and Rights to Access Information.
