Under their good governance platform, the Government of Mongolia joined the Open Government Partnership (OGP), which is a multilateral and voluntary initiative aimed at combatting corruption by increasing transparency and participation within the public service. As a member of the OGP, the Government of Mongolia is working towards their commitment of supporting an open and transparent public service by ensuring citizen participation, innovation and the creation of safe and healthy communities.
Stable governance is vital to the implementation and execution of Mongolia’s 2030 Sustainable Development Vision. In achieving this, a partnership between citizens, civil society, the private sector, media and international organizations is needed. While the adherence to principles of transparency, citizen empowerment, anti-corruption and using technology to improve governance are of high importance.
Mongolia’s National Action Plan II for the OGP
The II OGP National Action Plan (NAP) for Mongolia builds on the lessons learned from the I OGP NAP (2014-16) considering the objectives defined by the Mongolian Sustainable Development Vision 2030 through extensive public consultation engaging the civil society representatives with the leadership of the Cabinet Secretariat of the Government of Mongolia, under the guidance of the OGP Mongolia National Council, and with the technical and financial support of the Asian Foundation and the World Bank.
In its second NAP, Mongolia is making 13 commitments within the framework of four challenges. The first two commitments, "Mobile Application for Government center to receive citizens’ feedbacks and requests" and "Improving Glass Account System" are ongoing commitments of the first NAP Mongolia plans to build upon. The II NAP is also specific by outlining commitments such as "Developing a legal environment that ensures transparency in the funding of political parties", “transparency on information on beneficial ownership on mining sector” which meets OGP’s core principles.
