Twaweza is an active participant in the Open Government Partnership. The Tanzanian Government is currently finalizing its third National Action Plan and is seeking feedback from stakeholders. As part of its engagement with the OGP, Twaweza supported the Government to hold a feedback meeting with stakeholders from civil society to get their comments on the plan.
The event was covered by some media outlets. Unfortunately the OGP is not widely understood or well known among Tanzanian media or citizens generally which might have resulted in slightly lower levels of coverage. However the request for feedback and civil society organizations’ advice to government on the plan was covered by East Africa TV, Star TV, Majira, Habari Leo, The Citizen and Tanzania Daima.
