Anti Corruption For Peaceful & Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) Global Programme: Final Evaluation
Summary of publication
At the end of 2020, UNDP commissioned an independent final evaluation of ACPIS. The Final Evaluation which looks into the DFAT-funded components of ACPIS global project, considered what has (and has not) been working effectively with regard to the delivery of the outputs and objectives noted above.
Given the remote nature of the Final Evaluation (due to COVID 19), it was decided that the review would focus on semi-structured interviews via video platform. The Evaluation Team conducted approximately 20 interviews over a three-week period in January 2021.
The Final Evaluation concluded that the programme had achieved almost all the objectives and outputs it set out to achieve. The evaluation noted that ACPIS has led the drive to integrate anti-corruption measures into the development work related to specific governance sectors, such as education, health and justice. In particular, with the COVID-19 pandemic ACPIS was able to quickly scale-up its work within the health sector to promote the application of anti-corruption tools as governments globally rolled out significant health programmes.
DFAT welcomes the review findings and recommendations and notes that the implementation of these recommendations will be carried forward by UNDP. The program itself and DFAT’s funding have concluded.
