Tanzania's second Open Government Partnership (OGP) Action Plan published

Tanzania's second Action Plan for the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is now available on the Tanzania Open Government website. The plan covers two years, from July 2014 to June 2016. 

The core of the plan consists of commitments in five key areas:

  1. Freedom of Information
  2. Open Data
  3. Budget Transparency
  4. Land Transparency
  5. Extractive Industries Transparency

Highlights includes commitments to enact a Freedom of Information Act by December 2014; to publish key datasets including data on public services, census data, and ward and village boundaries; to publish eight key budget documents annually; to release information on tax exemptions; and to make public all new contracts with mining and oil and gas companies from 2014 onwards. 

Twaweza's Open Development Consultant, Ben Taylor, has reviewed the plan in more detail on his personal blog.
