Special Session: The Future of Transparency and Open Government

Special Session
14 November
Room 2 C

The 2030 Agenda calls for stronger, accountable and capable local and regional governments and institutions and for a renewed governance model that involves citizens and strengthens trust in the local public sector as cornerstones for the overall democratic system to work.
To respond to these demands, local and regional leaders are adopting open government as a new governance model since it favours transparency and access to public information. The Special Session is coordinated by the UCLG Community of Practice on Transparency and Open Government.
