Update on the 2018-20 National Action Plan on Open Government

Recognizing the impact of COVID-19 on governments around the world, the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is giving the option to member countries to extend the implementation timeline of their National Action Plans that were due for completion on June 30th, 2020. The Government of Canada has chosen to take advantage of this offer to ensure that there is enough time to implement commitments in its current plan. This modified timeline means that the completion date of the 2018-20 National Action Plan on Open Government will be moved to June 2021.

On November 26, 2019, we hosted our annual Digital Open Government Forum with speakers from within government and outside of government; the topic was Digital disruption: disrupt to innovate?. Prior to this event we hosted three events on open government (an Open Government forum in 2018, an event on open government in collaboration with TBS, and the Open Government partnership summit). In November 2020 we will host another iteration of our annual Digital Open Government Forum event.
We have a packed program of events, but "digital" encompasses a wide variety of topics including data ethics, open data, cybersecurity, and more. It can be challenging to devote 10 events to open data specifically within a limited timeframe.

• Across all 12 countries, women were generally under represented and not being deliberately engaged. • Governments tend to prioritize engaging civil society groups with technical expertise in co-creation, with little thought to grassroots and a diversity of organizations with women in mind. • The majority of commitments are gender blind – that is, they assume that commitments will have an equal impact, without taking equity issues into consideration. • A lack of gendered considerations in evaluation mechanisms limits accountability on gender issues (and other inclusion factors), including in the OGP’s Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM), country reports, flagship report, etc. • Gender-disaggregated data is identified as a clear priority, and there is a strong demand for data production and sharing on a variety of multi-dimensional and intersectional data points to support more nuanced policy and service-focused design, implementation, and tracking. • Gender-disaggregated data is identified as a clear priority, and there is a strong demand for data production and sharing on a variety of multi-dimensional and intersectional data points to support more nuanced policy and service-focused design, implementation, and tracking

This gender analysis guidance will integrate existing research and GBA+ guidance, with options to adapt for OGP local governments and civil society partners working in-country to integrate gender perspectives into open government processes. • In the last quarter of 2020, the Open Contracting Partnership – an initiative supported under OD4D III - scheduled a call for proposals for research proposals that respond to the question: How we can improve the effectiveness and equity of public procurement in the recovery? The grants will actively support researchers to use procurement data in identifying areas where policy reform could lead to measurable improvements in development outcomes: focusing on the equity of public procurement and/or the effectiveness of public procurement. Applications are open until 31 January 2021.

The range of case studies highlights the challenges and barriers many women and women’s organizations continue to face when participating in government processes. • Building on the first phase of the Feminist Open Government initiative and a co-design workshop, new pilot initiatives will aim to engage gender groups, women’s networks, indigenous communities, people with disabilities, LGBTQI+ communities, ethnic minorities and displaced peoples, to bring their needs (and data) to the table. For example: Exploring new data-driven tools, practices and policies to enable inclusive leadership and political influence, focusing broadly on driving gender equality and empowering women through Open Government; • Continuing to work with the Open Government Partnership to coordinate change, support knowledge sharing and support governments in building new National Action Plan commitments.
