To use the 2-year plan cycle of OGP as a set of stepping stones towards implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Hui E! Proposal 13

In the two years of this National Action Plan will develop strategies to address each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, potentially using the OGP 2-year planning cycle as a set of measurable stepping stones towards achievement of the 17 SDGs.

This proposal addresses the OGP Values of: Transparency, access to information, civic participation, and improving public accountability.

Why the contribution is important

At thism point New Zealand has no coherent strategy to make progress on the 17 Goals the we signed up to in September 2015. Relying on repeated claims by government that everything is rosy ignores reality, and will be exposed over time, undermining NZ's purported world leader status.

International experience reported at OGP workshops makes it clear - positive commitments to trnsparency, accountability, access to information, and citizen participation lead directly to improved international credit ratings, better international finance terms, and growth in GDP.
