15 Dec 2016


This document is a summary of ‘civil society’ engagement undertaken between 15 July and 30 August 2016 for the development of New Zealand’s second National Action Plan (NAP) for the Open Government Partnership (OGP). For the purposes of this project civil society was defined as anyone external to the New Zealand Government.

It summarises the channels created for engagement, how New Zealanders used these channels and input received during the engagement period. It also outlines lessons learned by engage2 during the process, and engage2’s recommendations to the State Services Commission (SSC) for ongoing engagement with stakeholders for the delivery of Open Government in New Zealand.
