Description

What is the public interest issue to be addressed by this commitment? Reduce significantly the level of corruption and improve the state of governance in Côte d'Ivoire. Corruption is a serious barrier to effective mobilization and distribution of resources and diverts vital activities of resources for poverty eradication and sustainable economic development in Côte d'Ivoire. For these reasons, the Ivorian Head of State is committed to making the fight against corruption a strong focus of his development policy. This desire has resulted in (i) the ratification in 2012 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption and that of the African Union on the prevention and fight against corruption, (ii) the establishment of an internal legal system to fight against corruption and (iii) the creation of the High Authority for Good Governance. The various recent actions and reforms carried out have resulted in an overall improvement in governance over the period 2013-2019. In fact, several governance assessment indicators retained by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) have changed from red to green during the above-mentioned period (see MCC Scorecards). Regarding the indicator "control of corruption, the score of Côte d'Ivoire published by the MCC for the period 2012-2019, fell from (-0.23) to 0.35. In 2020, this indicator experienced a weak performance, dropping from 0.35 to (-0.01). This poor performance reveals that the government will have to step up actions and reforms in terms of promoting good governance and the fight against corruption. In this perspective, the development of a national strategy to fight against corruption appears essential to serve as a strategic coordination framework structuring and guiding the various interventions in the field of the fight against corruption and similar offenses. It also responds to the implementation of the primary mission of the HABG in accordance with Article 4 of Ordinance No. 2013-661 of September 20, 2013 which is 15 "develop and implement the national strategy against corruption." The development of this strategy is also an answer to an international obligation of Côte d'Ivoire as part of the fight against corruption conventions, signed and ratified by Côte d’Ivoire, in particular the United Nations and the African Union Conventions.

What is the commitment? The general objective of this project is to put in place a strategic framework that structures and guides interventions in the fight against corruption and related offenses in Côte d'Ivoire. More specifically, this project aims to: - Make a diagnosis of the phenomenon of corruption and similar offenses in Côte d'Ivoire; - Analyze the existing legal and institutional system by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses; - Highlight the various strategic axes contributing to the achievement of this vision; - Define the general and specific objectives assigned to each strategic axis; - Propose actions to be implemented in order to achieve the specific and general objectives previously defined; - Develop a short and medium term action plan for the implementation of the strategy; - Develop a short and medium term budget; - Establish an institutional and organizational plan for the implementation of the strategy under the coordination of the High Authority for Good Governance.

How will commitment contribute to solve the public problem? This strategy is intended to be a set of structured responses, articulated in a coherent manner and targeting corruption in all its forms. It will be accompanied by a plan of multisectoral and integrated actions that will serve as a guideline to the High Authority for Good Governance and all stakeholders in the effective implementation of interventions against corruption and contributing to strengthening good governance in the management of public affairs.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This commitment improves and strengthens the fight against corruption. It will allow public services, the private sector and non-governmental organizations in Côte d'Ivoire to appropriate the values, principles and ethical standards in order to protect the general interest against private interests (strengthening of integrity in public services).
