General

This project aims to increase the integrity, transparency and accountability of public institutions and businesses, while empowering civil society to advocate for change in policy and practice. By working with businesses to improve their practices, public bodies to develop and enforce better anti-corruption legislation and practices, and individuals and communities to empower them to address corruption, this project contributes to improving the conditions for sustainable economic growth. In the Americas, this project supports increased adoption and exercise of accountability standards and laws by governments and security and judicial institutions to improve the security situation in targeted countries. In Africa, this project focuses on supporting networks of business, community and government actors to integrate existing and develop new evidence to increase access to basic services and improve the governance of land rights. Project activities include : (1) setting up or strengthening Advocacy and Legal Advice Centres (ALACs) to support citizens in identifying, reporting and dealing with cases of corruption; (2) conducting surveys and capturing data on experiences of corruption to create evidence for strengthening policy making and legal systems; (3) developing, testing and implementing new public sector integrity tools, such as a Security Justice Accountability Dashboard, to assess gaps between security and justice standards and actual public and business experiences, allowing authorities to adjust regulations and legislation according to identified needs; (4) conducting Business Integrity Country Assessments (BICA) to evaluate the anti-corruption operating environment and identify areas to improve business practices; and (5) developing training, standards and initiatives to help companies and business associations implement anti-corruption programs.
