2. Background

During the 18th IACC in Copenhagen, 19 countries and 10 international and regional organisations made a set of commitments on the steps each intend to take to make progress in anti-corruption, based on existing commitments (OGP action plans, UK summit, UNCAC, OECD instruments, SDGs, etc.). Participants agreed to set up a follow-up mechanism, the IACC Monitor, coordinated by TI-S, engaging all stakeholders (including governments, international and regional organisations, companies and civil society) in monitoring the implementation of these commitments.

The IACC Monitoring Report aims to capture the context and conditions under which commitments are being implemented as well as progress in the implementation of the commitments themselves. It is not designed to compare commitment implementation across countries/organisations or as the basis for any kind of index. Rather it is designed to support the identification of challenges and opportunities, and the development of recommendations on how commitment implementation can be accelerated under existing conditions and thereby strengthen the evidence-based advocacy work of the TI movement.
