This two-and-a-half day workshop, hosted by DFAT Australia, brought together fifty key stakeholders to discuss implementation of the country’s new national anti-corruption strategy. The overall goals of the workshop were to help participants develop an understanding of corruption risks and consequences as well as anti-corruption reforms in the Solomon Islands, and to develop an understanding of anti-corruption tools and mitigation measures. Government and aid agency representatives were convened during the first two days with the specific goal of learning how to monitor and evaluate progress in implementation of the strategy. Civil society, media, government, and aid agency stakeholders were convened on the third day to learn how to use social accountability and people’s engagement tools and initiatives to implement, monitor, and evaluate the strategy. Invited experts included representatives from the Government of Vanuatu, Government of Papua New Guinea, the United Nations Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption Project, and Transparency International.
