Beyond Incentives: Priorities for Sustaining OpenGov Reforms in the Niger Delta Post-SFTAS

Fiscal Openness — Seminar/Panel

Nigeria — May 30, 2024 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm GMT+01:00

Host Organization and Partners — Grassroots People Empowerment Foundation ( A.K.A Policy Alert) and Open Government Partnership Nigeria


Subnational governance reforms in Nigeria, including the uptake and implementation of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), received a tremendous boost in the last few years with the States Fiscal Transparency and Accountability Programme-for-Results (SFTAS P-for-R). As SFTAS ended, and several states came under new administrations in 2023, many of the reforms faced a real risk of being rolled back. This is particularly true in the Niger Delta, where the fiscal flows appear not to match the openness on the ground. This X Spaces will answer the question: How can OpenGov results for SFTAS be sustained, especially in the Niger Delta?

Meet the moment. Raise ambition. Rise to the challenge.

The Open Government Challenge is a call to action for all members of OGP to raise ambition in ten areas of open government to help strengthen our democracies. Over the next five years, all members of the Partnership should aim to raise the ambition of reforms in 10 policy areas and demonstrate relevant progress in as many of the areas of the Challenge through their OGP action plans or beyond.We must act together to make a difference, because only when governments, public officials, and civil society work together, we see more ambitious and impactful reforms that transform our communities.

It’s our time to meet the moment. Let’s use Open Gov Week to take on the the Open Gov Challenge.
