“In those OAS Member States where legislation on access to public information is already in effect, the project will analyze existing law in this area, in comparison with the Model Law and its Implementation Guide, focusing on providing guidance on updating or complementing existing law.

In countries that lack specialized law on this topic, and that wish to fill this void, the project will promote the Model Law and Implementation Guide, and work to generate consensus toward the adoption of national legislation in this area, in accordance with the most coherent, modern, and generally accepted legal practices in the Americas.”
