Third National Action Plan

Third National Action Plan 

We developed New Zealand’s Third Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan in 2018-21. The Plan’s 12 Commitments are listed below. In the Resources section we’ve published the Plan and related documents, including records from key stages of the Plan’s development. The ‘how’ of plan implementation was very important – we will be learning how to make the most of New Zealand’s diversity to improve our collective wellbeing and strengthen our democracy. OGP's Independent Reporting Mechanism has published New Zealand’s third National Action Plan Transitional Results Report for public comment. To see the report and/or have your say, click here. The consultation closes 5pm, 24 February 2022.
