It is acknowledged by donors that the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) should play a central role in country-level dialogue, implementation, and monitoring of anti‑corruption work. At the same time, when supporting UNCAC implementation, the principles of the Paris Declaration should be applied.
Also, donor alignment efforts are still rather limited to the national level; even when adopting sectoral approaches, donors still focus heavily on the central level of government. With anti‑corruption measures - which are likely to affect numerous sectors in a country - much more attention will have to be brought to sub-national levels of governments and constituencies. This will be all the more necessary when establishing an evidence base for measuring results, be it under the Paris Declaration or under UNCAC, as performance will have to be measured at the level of implementation.
