Hi. This note is very helpful for task teams, providing an easy to understand framework for multi-disciplinary participants. A couple of thoughts; 1. It may be important to explicitly include testing of the articulated theory before engaging stakeholders whenever possible. It would improve the likelihood of better engagement when stakeholders are assured of good chances of success. Government actors may especially be nervous about doing something new that could fail very publicly. 2. Task teams working with CSOs and government should also be encouraged to design OGD programs that also encourage the use of other technologies like print and FM radio. Building this in from the onset would nudge organizations or government departments intimidated by technology to use channels they are already used to in reaching citizens. Feedback loops also need not only be mobile/PC but could also be these low tech channels that are still fairly ubiquitous in both urban and rural areas.
