A significant benefit to joining OGP is being connected with a network of allies with valuable experiences in working toward a common objective of a more open government. In advance of the OGP High-Level Event at the United Nations on September 24th 2014, all OGP participating countries and a collection of OGP partners, including civil society organizations, were asked to make a pledge to build a more active peer exchange and support activities with other OGP counties. A total of 32 countries, 13 civil society organizations, five OGP Working Groups, and five Multilateral Partners made commitments to help countries make more ambitious commitments and implement them.
These pledges were included in a one-sentence summary included in Annex 1 of the Outcome Statement and the details behind each commitment have now been published in a supplemental Annex.
