Fourth National Action Plan

Read about New Zealand’s Fourth National Action Plan under the Open Government Partnership. National Action Plans are created out of ideas put forward by the public and civil society. These ideas are then developed into potential “commitments” by civil society, members of the public and government agencies. Citizen and community group involvement in each Plans development is the lifeblood of Open Government Partnership work.

Joint report to the Minister for the Public Service

In 2021, a joint report to the Minister for the Public Service on potential focus areas for New Zealand’s fourth Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan was published on the Te Kawa Mataaho website.

Ideas for the Fourth National Action Plan

We’ve taken the ideas received (including from workshops) and added these to our ideas page. These ideas are sorted by the four high-level themes, as well as the source (such as a workshop, online or formal written submission).

Letter from the OGP: regarding New Zealand’s shift to the 2022 cohort for our fourth National Action Plan

In June 2021, we wrote to OGP to advise them of our intention to extend the development period for our next National Action Plan to mid-2022, joining the countries delivering Plans in 2022.
