Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The aim of the workshop will be to provide a venue to draw on CSO experiences from across the globe to share knowledge, identify strategies that work, and begin discussion toward ways to advance open government – and overcome obstacles in collaborations between national CSOs and their governments involved in the OGP processes. During the workshop, presenters and participants will be encouraged to share their experiences, identify commonalities, and provide lessons-learned and, it is hoped, begin to identify strategies to strengthen CSO-government collaboration in developing and implementing national action plans.

The workshop will include a 40-minutes break-out session where participants will be divided into groups, led by each of our presenters, to discuss the challenges CSOs face when engaging with one another and with governments. We encourage participants to come prepared to discuss the following topics: 1) How do you coordinate with other CSOs?2) What are the approaches you use to work with government on NAP development and/or consultation on the commitments?; 3) What lessons have you learned from your OGP experiences?; 4) How do you monitor government progress on OGP commitments?

The final section of the workshop will be a 20 minutes report back from the presenters, where we will discuss the findings from the break-out sessions, and work to identify strategies for working with national governments, ideas for improving coalition building among CSOs, regularly-experiences obstacles and new approaches to overcome these obstacles.
