Please join us on November 16 at the National Endowment for Democracy, where Global Integrity’s managing director, Nathaniel Heller, will present the Latin America Local Governance Toolkit. After months of collaboration and data collection with our local partners in Argentina, Ecuador and Peru, Global Integrity proudly released this first-of-its-kind assessment in September.
See below for more details on the toolkit and how to RSVP for the event.
Improving Local Governance in Latin America:
A Toolkit to Empower Civil Society Anti-Corruption Efforts
The Latin America Local Governance Toolkit assesses the existence, effectiveness, and citizen access to key governance mechanisms and anti-corruption safeguards at the sub-national level in three Latin American countries: Argentina, Ecuador and Peru. The indicators seek to measure accountability and transparency across the public sector, considering issues such as local public financial management and fiscal transfers, local civil service regulations and conflicts of interest safeguards, transparency around local state-owned enterprises, and the financing of local political parties and candidates. Generated through a collaborative partnership between Global Integrity, an international NGO that tracks governance and corruption trends, and local think tanks – CIPPEC (Argentina), Grupo FARO (Ecuador), and Ciudadanos al Día (Peru) – the Toolkit is being used by stakeholders in each country to design and advocate for evidence-based, sub-national governance and integrity reforms.
Join us for a discussion on the Toolkit’s methodology, results and local advocacy efforts on:
Monday, November 16, 2009; 3 – 5pm
1025 F St. NW, Suite 800, Washington D.C.
