Corruption Perception Survey
This report is a compilation of the results of our first households corruption perception survey conducted in South Kivu. In total 980 people has been interviewed. Results will be used to help government, civil society and the private sector to formulate and implement policies and programs to strengthening integrity and good governance in DRC and thereby reduce corrupt practices.
Engaging community members to build integrity in South-Kivu.
On May 08, 2017, CERC provided trainings to 63 community members in Fizi on how they can build integrity and hold both local government, implementing agencies. service providers and NGOs to account. The motivated people mobilise other people in their own community.
The communities’ biggest focus is the monitoring the delivery of public services in education, health and the implementation of infrastructure projects in their own communities. This is important in a country where 2/4 of people say they paid a bribe to access public services and the implementation of infrastrcture projects are not effective.
Our priority is to mobilise a social movement to promote transparency and build integrity in South-Kivu, reflected in their initiatives and engagements. Very early on, we realised the importance of civil society participation in promoting integrity and promoting transparent, accountable and efficient governance.
Increasing the positive impact of civil society organisations in development, from the grassroots to policy-making.
On May 13, 2017, a total of 40 persons from 23 grassroots organisations in Uvira were trained in anti-corruption strategies and provided with social accountability approach and tools such as the Community Integrity Building, DevelopmentCheck Online platform and Health and Education Assessment tools. The participants were encouraged to adapt the tools to fit their settings and situations as all them indicated that they didn’t have anything to use regarding the collection of beneficiary findings.
We hope to see this work scaling up beyond civil society on the introduction of Community Integrity Building in communities.
