Local Integrity Initiatives

What are Local Integrity Initiatives?

The Local Integrity Initiatives are a collection of unique projects assessing anti-corruption and governance at the sub-national and at sector levels. As an extension of our nationally-focused Global Integrity Report, these joint projects are carried out with local partners — directly relevant to the diverse governance challenges found at the local level. They often involve follow-on outreach and advocacy. Local Integrity Initiatives were concluded in Liberia, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, the Philippines, Kenya and Papua New Guinea.
