FPDL's Good Governance work wins 2011 United Nations Public Service Award for two cities

Martin, Slovakia and Craiova, Romania win the 2011 United Nations Public Service Award for North America and Europe in the category “Preventing and Combating Corruption in the Public Service”. Both local governments applied the novel strategic anticorruption approach, promoted by FPDL in CEE/SEE countries with LGI/OSI support.

The FPDL anti-corruption approach is inspired by the successful experience of Mayor Ronald MacLean Abaroa, his consultant Robert Klitgaard and their team, in La Paz.

Craiova Local Government implemented, with FPDL anti-corruption practitioners support, a participatory strategic planning process which aim was, beyond treating and preventing corruption, to enhance organization integrity, transparency, accountability and efficiency.

In 2011, 36 public organizations, from 23 countries were selected from 298 nominations from 58 countries, to receive the Public Service Award, under 5  categories:

1. Preventing and combating corruption in the public service

2. Improving the delivery of public services
