We convened a training session for the Nairobi Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on Open Government Partnership (OGP) on Tuesday 7th, 2023, to enhance their awareness of the OGP through the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) OGP Toolkit.
CSOs are the key to the co-creation processes and ensuring accountability to the commitments. Therefore, the training also sought to further advance OGP values of improved service delivery, civic participation, technology, and innovation for openness and accountability in delivering public infrastructure.
The Nairobi County Executive Committee Member in charge of Inclusivity, Public Participation, and Customer Service, Hon. Silantoi Suzanne in her keynote speech unearthed strides the County is making in strengthening public participation by developing call centres and digital platforms such as My Nairobi App.
In ensuring openness and improved access to information, Hon. Silantoi disclosed that the County is on a journey to compile all Nairobi County government's information into one depository, adding that this will boost feedback mechanisms which is a key priority in ensuring meaningful public participation.
Participants also had an opportunity to pitch their views during a breakout session on how to leverage OGP in service delivery and access to information to promote health, education, and governance.
