Enhancing transparency and accountability

The challenges of technical capacity, transparency, and citizen participation have hindered effective and participatory governance in Ecuador. To address this, Counterpart’s USAID-funded program, New Partnerships in Open Government in Ecuador, aims to enhance transparency and accountability by strengthening the capacity of civil society, government, academia, and the private sector.

It supports the implementation of the Open Government Partnership, including the adoption of open government models, reforms, and mechanisms for citizen participation and accountability. The program ensures the success of the first Open Government Partnership National Action Plan, strengthens the capacity of the Ecuadorian government through the co-creation and implementation of reforms in the Second Action Plan, and aids the development of open government principles in local government, specifically supporting the municipality of Quito.

The partnership also promotes inclusivity by involving diverse groups, including disadvantaged and vulnerable populations, and employs a participatory dialogue methodology to generate practical proposals for Ecuador’s Second National Action Plan.
