In terms of open government, ECLAC has promoted active collaboration between entities and government bodies at all levels, and between them and citizens. It has also supported countries in the region to formulate policies of open government and develop their own action plans based on the three following pillars: i) transparency and accountability; ii) collaboration within the government both civil servants and technological innovation with citizens for the co-creation of public and social value; and iii) participation in the process of actively engaging citizens in the design, formulation and implementation of public policies. For example, in terms of training, since April 2015 ECLAC has trained more than 500 professionals from 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
