The Economic Research Center (ERC) held a seminar to demonstrate the methodology it and other NGOs will be using to monitor Azerbaijan’s progress on the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

The methodology assesses freedom of information, e-services, public participation in state institutions, and progress on the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative, among other areas. It includes a questionnaire to be submitted to state agencies responsible for making the necessary reforms.

The monitoring will continue for the next four years, with the results to be presented at the international level.

The “National Action Plan of the Open Government Initiative 2012-2015” was endorsed by the President of Azerbaijan on September 5, 2012. The monitoring project is supported by USAID and Transparency Azerbaijan.
