Open Government Partnership created an open space for the community to share where they see open government approaches to tackling COVID-19 being implemented, either by governments themselves or civil society, citizens or the private sector.
You can participate through sharing examples that may cover some of the following categories:
- Citizen-led community responses, including neighborhood volunteer groups and neighborhood associations, clergy, teachers or others helping to inform the public on the risks and needed steps.
- Participatory disaster response strategies, including working with civil society and citizens.
- Building trust between government and citizens, including through strong communications and focusing on reaching vulnerable communities with the information they need.
- Transparency over forecasting models and data that are influencing government’s strategies.
- Digital platforms or apps to keep citizens informed, enable public participation and/or offer open data; Digital tools to enable public participation.
- Digital and/or crowdsourced provision of public and government services.
- Protecting data rights and privacy as corporations help lead the response in many countries.
- Tackling misinformation and disinformation online.
- Publishing proactive information for affected communities, including economic and social support.
OGP also organized a running list of these examples so the OGP community can use them as they see fit. The list is updated on regular basis.
