Accountable Governance

Good governance is an ongoing process driven by good leadership and decision-making. We’re committed to working across sectors and in collaboration with our government partners to improve accountability and transparency, increase citizen participation, and build strong institutions that are well-managed, corruption-free, and responsive to the needs of the people.

Anti Corruption

The Partners Network has developed a distinctive approach to fighting corruption at the local level. Led by the Partners Foundation for Local Development (FPDL) in Romania, the ‘Islands of Integrity’ approach to combating corruption is an innovative methodology rooted in the active participation of the leaders of the organization to work together to find solutions based on an analysis of factors that permit and encourage a culture of corrupt actions. Our Methodology is grounded on the belief that Corruption (C) is created by the system in which there is Monopoly (M) over an activity or service delivery, where there is Discretion (D) in decision making and where there are no Accountability (A) or Transparency (T) mechanisms. This has been expressed by leading authority, Robert Klitgaard, in the following formula: C=M+D-A/T.

Our approach treats corruption as a symptom of the organization’s malfunctioning and treats people as capable, motivated human beings, knowledgeable about their organizations. Our approach is both strategic and participatory, with proven results in more than 12 countries.
