By BBN Staff: As part of the second phase of the Open Government project: Transformation to an Open Public Administration in Belize, and seeking to leverage open government tools to tackle issues raised by COVID-19, The Trust for the Americas in coordination with the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Belize Open Government Steering Committee announces the launch of the Belize Open Government Action Plan Development in Times of COVID-19.
The Belize National Open government action plan is intended to serve as the instrument to orient the actions of stakeholders in Belize to accomplish certain open government commitments that are identified and agreed by government and non-government in different topics and sectors.
Rodrigo Iriani, Project Manager of the initiative comments “Given the diverse challenges posed by COVID-19 in Belize, the exercise of developing Belize’s open government action plan seeks to contribute to defining priority areas in which open government could add more value or have a greater impact for COVID-19 related recovery.”
The co-creation process of an action plan entails a sustained participatory approach open to anyone wishing to participate, to identify areas of opportunity to utilize open government in pursuing among other new policies, improved government services, innovative transparency efforts, or alike.
At the end of the action plan, co-creation process and much public consultation, agreed areas of opportunities to address COVID-19 response and recovery through open government will become what are known as open government commitments within action plans.
The activities are possible thanks to the contribution of the US Embassy in Belmopan for the execution of the project “Transformation to an Open Public Administration in Belize”.
