Governance and Anti-Corruption diagnostics are most valuable in the following circumstances:

  • Governance diagnostics are effective when they are based upon country-level demand for information about governance and corruption in a country. Routinely, public officials and other stakeholders in a given country request assistance from the World Bank to evaluate governance and corruption in their country. These requests often lead to a collaborative initiative to conduct a governance and anti-corruption diagnostic. The initiative may result in a diagnostic that assesses the broad governance landscape in a country, or one that is focused on a high priority sector.

  • Governance diagnostics provide a useful platform for country-level stakeholders who are seeking to make governance and anti-corruption reforms, and to monitor those reforms over time. Governance and anti-corruption diagnostics are used most effectively as a tool to support the reform process of a given country. The reform-orientation of these diagnostics requires that each diagnostic be customized to the context of a given country. While this customization maximizes the potential to use the diagnostic as a base for governance reform, the customization may reduce the opportunity to use the data for cross-country research comparisons. In sum, these diagnostics may generate data that lends itself to cross-country comparisons, but this is a secondary objective. The primary objective of these diagnostics is to support the governance and anti-corruption reform process of a given country.

  • Governance diagnostics provide the foundation for developing and implementing an action plan for reform when country-level actors – including public officials, NGOs, media, enterprises, and others – engage in the diagnostic design and, especially, the validation of the results. Different from research-oriented diagnostics, governance and anti-corruption diagnostics have a practical orientation, based in the political economy of a country. The design and implementation of the diagnostic focuses on what is feasible and valuable for promoting reform in a given country. A critical aspect of making these determinations is engaging critical stakeholders and linking the diagnostic with the actual reform process.
