The blog was created by the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI). The purpose of the blog is to provide regular updates on the progress of the Georgian government in meeting its action plan for Open Government Partnership. The blog will provide information about ongoing projects and initiatives, as well as future plans of the government in promoting open governance, transparency and a greater degree of public engagement.
Georgia joined the global initiative in September of 2011 and has already made significant progress towards meeting the goals of OGP. In 2014 Georgia was elected as a member of OGP steering committee. Open Government Georgia’s action plan 2014-2015 has already been established. It comprises 26 commitments to be implemented by 16 responsible agencies.
The Georgian society remains largely unaware of the importance and scale of the Open Government Partnership that now has 64 member countries and more joining regularly, and the blog will attempt to provide interesting and important information that will encourage the public to keep track of the progress of OGP, both in Georgia and globally.
