The Open Government Partnership is a multilateral international initiative that was formally launched on September 20, 2011 by the US and Brazilian Presidents during a United Nations General Assembly session. Its priorities include: a) securing concrete commitments from governments to facilitate transparency in governance; b) involving citizens in governance processes; c) fighting corruption; d) harnessing new technologies to strengthen governance.

All 70 OGP initiative countries adopted the Open Government Declaration, developed National plans, and agreed to an independent evaluation of its activity results. The countries annually report on their OGP initiative progress.
