Information about the project
Guía de Apertura Anticorrupción
Open Up Guide
Open Data and digital technologies are some of the most useful tools to fight corruption. The Mexican Government recognizes this potential and takes actions that integrate these tools in the promotion of governmental integrity. Along these lines, Mexico participated actively in the G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group to recognize Open Data as a key enabler of the global fight against corruption, promoting its opening and interoperability by default. Based on this work, Mexico, as a part of the Advisory Board of the Open Data Charter, contributed to the development of the Open Up Guide: Using Open Data to Combat Corruption. During the Anti-Corruption Summit 2016, the Government of Mexico made the compromise to implement this Guide in order to use Open Data in the prevention, detection, investigation and sanction of corruption, as well as to embed open data as an integral part of Mexico’s National Anti Corruption System. In August of this year, the Mexican Government together with the Open Data Charter, the Inter American Development Bank, the Mexican Chapter of Transparency International, Civica Digital and USAID, began with the first phase of implementation. This phase consisted in a series of workshops with actors of the Mexican government that produce and use key anti corruption related datasets. This effort has made Mexico the first country in the world to deliver, test and document upon the implementation of the Anticorruption Open Up Guide.
