pdf Enhancing Government Effectiveness and Transparency: The Fight Against Corruption Popular

This World Bank Global Report from September 2020, authored by Rajni Bajpai and Bernard Myers, examines the increasingly complex landscape of corruption at the national and global level. It examines the non-linear nature of progress on anti-corruption efforts, warning that previously successful reforms could suffer or fail due to political setbacks and institutional weaknesses. The report also emphasizes the need of coordinated action by multiple actors in institutions, civil society, government, and the public at large.

Chapter 12 (pages 304-315) deals specific with the role of Supreme Audit Institutions in supporting anti-corruption efforts. It specifically notes in several instances how crucial independence is to SAIs in fulfilling this role. The chapter concludes with two case studies on the Ghana Audit Service and on the Office of the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.
