Colombia has been immersed in a wave of protests and mobilizations that reject corruption, opacity, the misuse of public resources and, on the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the above, trust and social cohesion have also been affected. For this reason, the Fourth National Action Plan for Open Government of Colombia has a State approach that includes executive entities at the national and local level, control bodies and the high courts to recover citizen confidence in public institutions.
The Open State Committee, with the support of the OGP Multi-Donor Trust Fund, designed the methodology for the construction process of this Fourth Action Plan in a consensual manner. First, the thematic areas were defined by a citizen consultation through a survey in which 806 citizens from 29 departments participated. Then, the problems and/or institutional proposals were identified to later generate the commitments. Finally, the commitments were drafted and adopted by the entities.
