Latin America and Carribean

The Review highlights the efforts Latin American and Carribean countries have made to implement reforms to become more transparent, effective, accountable and responsive to citizens’ needs. At the same time, it identifies certain core challenges, such as the development of a clearer institutional framework to support policy definition, coordination and implementation at the local and national levels, that are shared by Latin American countries and that need to be addressed in order for them to become truly "open".

 

The Review, which analyses open government efforts of eleven Latin American countries, draws on the results of the OECD Survey on Open Government in Latin America and presents a general overview of the current status of open government in three areas of open government: open government policy co-ordination and strategies, access to public information and open data. In addition, the Review provides in-depth case studies of open government policies and practices in Costa Rica, Peru, and Colombia.
