Recognising that a lack of financial support and technical capacity is a key constraint to the realisation of ambitious open government reforms, OGP and the World Bank, led by the Governance Global Practice (GGP), established the OGP Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) to support World Bank client countries in completing their OGP commitments; broadening the stakeholder base, particularly by leveraging the Bank's convening power in countries and subnational entities engaged in the OGP; supporting non-OGP countries that are considering participation; deepening the research on results and impact; and increasing the scale and effectiveness of OGP-related Bank operations.
The OGP MDTF program on Advancing OGP’s Thematic Priorities is specifically targeted at promoting the ambitious uptake of OGP’s thematic priorities by helping to catalyse a “race to the top” on emerging open government norms through use of the OGP platform at the national-local and global level. The OGP MDTF is seeking organisations outside the public or for-profit sector that will strengthen and promote coalitions of governments and civil society organisations engaged in cross-country learning, peer exchange, policy development and advocacy in support of uptake of OGP’s thematic priorities (please see Eligibility Requirements below for details of the type of eligible organisations).
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Advancing OGP's Thematic Priorities window of the OGP Multi-Donor Trust Fund. Please visit the Trust Fund website for more details.
