Open Government Partnership: Collecting Open Government Approaches to COVID-19

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.
