Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We support progress towards open, accountable and effective governance in countries and communities around the world. We help partners solve complex problems relating to corruption and the use of public resources, and use the evidence we generate to shape policy and practice on governance and development.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Integrity and Anti - Corruption

We support the development and application of more effective approaches to tackling corruption, which account for the fact that corruption happens because it serves the interests and aligns with the incentives of powerful players. Our approach foregrounds the interests and perspectives of local change agents, and takes a systemic view of the factors that hinder progress towards reducing corruption and improving integrity. We work with our partners - citizen groups, CSOs, INGOs, and others - supporting their efforts to craft, implement and refine solutions to the specific corruption challenges they face. We use the evidence and insights generated through this work to inform and strengthen the effectiveness of global institutions working on corruption, in order to drive progress toward more integrity and accountability across the world.

We’re working to make MSIs more effective vehicles for transformative change. We support MSI stakeholders - in-country reformers, MSIs themselves, and donors and INGOs - as they engage with, and shape, political dynamics and patterns of incentives in the systems in which they work. This means facilitating partners’ efforts to identify and analyze problems, design and test creative strategies for addressing those problems, systematically track progress, and course correct in response to emerging lessons and challenges. We feed the evidence and insights from country-level work into global conversations on MSIs, with a view towards helping MSIs sharpen their learning functions, make the most of their interconnections, and ultimately, strengthen their contribution to improving governance and solving governance-related problems.

Starting with problems, and driving towards solutions, we partner with governments and civil society organizations across the world, at national and sub-national levels, to support their efforts to use data about public resources - revenues, allocations, expenditures and results - to understand and shape the institutional and political dynamics that are at the heart of sectoral and service delivery challenges. Through doing this work, we also generate evidence and insights about how the data landscape might be improved, about the effectiveness of different strategies for opening fiscal governance, and about the ways in which efforts to use fiscal data to address service delivery challenges can best be supported. We use this evidence to inform the evolution of the fiscal governance agenda.

With our colleagues at Development Gateway, we founded the Open Gov Hub in 2012 to tackle these challenges head on. As a dynamic meeting place that brings together various actors and resources, we support a global network of 40+ organizations working on governance, anchored in our brick and mortar co-working space in Washington DC (with affiliate hubs in Liberia, Nepal, and elsewhere). We offer access to essential shared resources, and facilitate learning and innovation across our networks. We help our members and partners uncover shared interests and needs, and break down sectoral and organizational silos. We use the evidence that emerges from this work to catalyze collaboration across the world, and, strengthen our members’ ability to rise to the global challenges of our time, particularly related to open, accountable governance.
