Corruption and public sector reform monitoring systems

While most national anti-corruption strategies (NACS) recognise that anti-corruption efforts and public sector reforms are intrinsically related, the link between NACS and main government policies is often missing at the operational level. Most NACS provide for review mechanisms that primarily focus on monitoring anti-corruption measures as illustrated by the cases of Georgia, Zambia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nicaragua or Tanzania. The implementation and impact of such mechanisms has been limited so far, due to lack of capacity, political will, resources and coordination capacity between the various public agencies involved. Civil society has also been insufficiently involved in the monitoring of NACS.
