Hungary will join the OGP

Hungary will join OGP soon!

It was a bit more that 7 months ago when EMLA, HCLU Hungary, TI Hungary, K-Monitor (acticorruption) and Ecological Partnership Hungary together sent a message to the Minister of Administration and Justice of Hungary in order to stimulate government decision-making to join OGP. And it was yesterday, 9 May 2012 when the Ministry invited the above NGOs to present their ideas and participate in the process of formulating the OGP commitments of Hungary. We consider it a success and a good example of government-NGO cooperation. Of course what interests us now is the formulation and the implementation of the actual commitments. The proposed timeline of the accession is that by October the commitments will be ready for submission to the OGP Secretariat, and NGOs will be involved both in the preparation and the monitoring of implementation of the commitments. We will keep you updated on this blog about what is happening in this matter!

This is great news Csaba. TAI Secretariat is preparing a report looking at all OGP commitments and those which have a natural resource or environmental focus. Hope this can help contribute to the discussion in Hungary

Accelerating process

Dear All, Just a quick update: yesterday there was a meeting in the Ministry of Justice on the potential OGP commitments of Hungary. The next meeting is scheduled for the next week (!). First draft ready by 15 October, public consultation begins soon after, and submission to OGP of the commitments is 2013 Spring. We try to include as many environmental actions as possible into the plan. dr. Csaba Kiss Director EMLA
