Open government principles of transparency, accountability & participation can be crucial in facilitating government responsiveness to citizens’ needs & better accountability for use of public resources, leading to improvements that are observable and experienced by citizens in their daily lives. Several OGP countries in the Asia-Pacific region have made commitments on opening up data on public services, establishing feedback mechanisms and involving citizens in the design, delivery and monitoring of services. Yet, the Independent Reporting Mechanism findings show limited potential for transformative impact, particularly as the reforms are scaled beyond pilot phases.

This session will feature stories from practitioners in the health, education, and water sectors as they endeavour to bring about improvements in basic public service delivery while utilising open government principles. We will hear about how governments & civil society are implementing accountable, citizen-centred, & responsive public service delivery initiatives. Interested participants will also have the chance to learn how to design ambitious public service delivery commitments.
