Members of the ADB/OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative for Asia and the Pacific have decided to expand its policy analysis activities by conducting voluntary country reviews. The purpose of the reviews is to examine in depth a member’s anti-corruption efforts in selected areas. The reviews will help identify not only a member’s achievements but also its needs for capacity building. They will also facilitate the exchange of experience and dissemination of best practices among all members.
In 2009, the Initiative adopted a methodology for the voluntary country reviews. The Initiative's Secretariat is now seeking volunteer countries and financial support for the first two reviews as a pilot project. Thereafter, the Initiative will refine its methodology before further reviews are conducted.
