Preparations for Jamaica's First National Action Plan included the approval of 4 thematic areas by the Multi-Stakeholder Forum (MSF): Justice and Human Rights; Natural Resources; Environment and Climate; Access to Information; and Youth. With the approval of these thematic areas, the MSF organized several rounds of meetings of OGP stakeholder consultation groups in order to discuss and develop proposed commitments for each thematic area.
The participants in these consultations included representatives of government ministries, departments and agencies, civil society organizations, the private sector, trade unions, faith-based organizations, youth organizations and academia.
