OPEN GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE
CHANGING THE CULTURE OF GOVERNMENT
The central aim of the Open Government Initiative is the vision that by 2020, Somalia is a leading country in Africa for transparency. To this end, the Open Government Initiative is a strategic plan developed to fight corruption in the Somali national context. The initiative demonstrates a clear commitment to fight corruption and increase transparency and accountability at all levels, and is a crucial element in the broader process of democratization, state building, and development. The initiative would modernize information dissemination; thus effectively paving the way for a collaborative, inclusive, effective, transparent and accountable government, critical for sustainable development, democratization, and the fight against corruption.
