In the past year, we have worked on shaping our next five-year strategy for 2022–2026, and we will soon share it here.
Through a horizon-scanning exercise, we have identified four key trends that will shape the environment for anti-corruption work in the coming years.
Four key trends
- Anti-corruption needs to respond to local conditions.
- Geopolitical power is shifting bringing competing agendas.
- The complex nature and transnational dimension of corruption must be confronted,.
- Practitioners face uncertainty in their work.
Our next strategy is a deliberate response to these four key trends.
Four strategic goals
- Greater impact on the ground
To respond to the challenging environments in many countries, and to ensure contextualised interventions, we will support our partners to achieve greater impact in countries where they run programmes by moving closer to local practice and challenges.
- A coherent, global approach to anti-corruption
To respond to rising powers and competing agendas, we will work with our partners to develop a coherent, global approach to anti-corruption by being a leading convener and trusted knowledge-broker.
- Addressing the complexities of corruption
To respond to the ever-increasing intricacy and transnational nature of corruption, we will equip our partners to address complex corruption issues by taking new perspectives.
- Pushing anti-corruption up the agenda
To respond to the uncertainty practitioners face, we will ensure that anti-corruption remains a top priority in our partners’ home countries by strengthening the U4 partnership and demonstrating the need to make anti-corruption a top priority.
