    Transparency

    Making government information available to the public promotes informed citizenry. Information on government activities, including fiscal transparency, and decisions is open, comprehensive, timely and freely available to the public.

    Accountability

    Law, rules, regulations and mechanisms that hold government actors responsible for their actions, and follow through on requirements made of them, as well as accept responsibility for failure to perform with respect these commitments should be in place

    Participation

    Creating and fostering opportunities for participation is needed for democracy, as well as ensuring the involvement of all aspects of civil society. Mobilizing citizens to engage in public debate, provide input, and make contributions is necessary for innovative and effective governance.

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.
