Ideas for the Fourth National Action Plan

The first phase of the process to develop the fourth Open Government Partnership National Action Plan (NAP 4) was the gathering of ideas from members of the public through our online conversation platform, as well as via workshops with interested individuals and groups across the country. This process started in 2020 with workshops and conversations and concluded in mid-2021.

The ideas were assessed with our expert advisory panel (EAP), civil society organisations, and a range of government agencies, and joint advice provided to the Minister for the Public Service on potential focus areas for Action Plan. We are grateful to everyone who submitted ideas for this Action Plan.

We’ve taken the ideas received in 2020 and 2021 and put these into a single document. These are sorted by the three high-level themes we collected ideas under, as well as the source (such a workshop, online or formal written submission).

Updated NAP4 ideas to reflect joint advice to the minister

We are currently working with our EAP, civil society organisations, government agencies and others to further prioritise and refine ideas and then work these up into commitments.
