The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples is a participant of the Philippine Open Government Partnership (PH-OGP) which is a multi-organization partnership periodically convened by the Department of Budget and Management. PH-OGP seeks to implement initiatives on access to information, civic participation, public accountability, and leveraging on technology to strengthen governance. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, implementation of the 5th National Action Plan (NAP) was extended by one year and some commitments were adjusted to adapt and respond to the current health and economic crisis.As the country like the rest of the world continues to confront the grim reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, having an open, accountable and transparent government is now more important than ever. That is why, the PH-OGP joins the rest of the OGP global community in celebration of the Open Gov Week on May 17-21, 2021. The Open Gov Week (OGW) is an opportunity to come together with government reformers, leaders and thinkers from around the world to share ideas, discuss solutions and commit to new levels of citizen participation in government to respond to and recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. The theme will focus on how we build again governments, institutions and societies that are transparent, accountable, participatory and inclusive.NCIP’s participation to Open Gov Week through its segment on May 17, 2021 from 2:00pm-4:00pm is focused on the “BUILDING UP CULTURES OF TRANSPARENCY WITH IP COMMUNITIES” where voices from the CSO, the IP community, and the NCIP itself will converge for the purpose of building and sustaining that common goal.
