NATIONAL INTEGRITY STRATEGY
The National Integrity Strategy is a national level initiative to infuse transparency, accountability, and integrity into everyday public and private life.
The National Integrity Strategy sets out the government’s plan to address system weakness in domestic institutions, highlighted by the UN as a key driver of corruption. The NIS reflects the government’s stated belief that “the fight against corruption cannot be won by prosecution alone; an inclusive approach based on values, morals, ethics, and integrity is necessary.”
NATIONAL INTEGRITY STRATEGY:
Under the NIS, the government aims to:
Have Parliament emerge as a place for fair and rational debate for law-making
Ensure that local government is people-oriented, accountable, transparent, and independent
Continue to foster an environment where civil society remains articulate, non-partisan, and vocal about national integrity, so that citizens can effectively demand transparency and accountability from public institutions
