Examining Constituency Development Funds in Zambia

GOPAC partner and fellow anti-corruption leader, Tearfund, joined us for the Fifth Global Conference of Parliamentarians Against Corruption where they unveiled their research report Constituency Development Funds: Transparency in grassroots development or political patronage. The report, which examines the constituency development fund in Zambia, was a joint effort between Tearfund and the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ).

During the launch of the report, EFZ and Tearfund called on parliamentarians to:

  • Enhance transparency, ensuring that information is useful and understandable at the local level;
  • Promote meaningful community participation throughout the process, from the decision making to the monitoring of projects; and
  • Reduce the level of influence that the Parliamentarians have over decisions on the use of CDFs.

The report shows that these aspects can make a difference to the outcome of local development projects. At the closing ceremony of the Global Conference the African Parliamentarian Network Against Corruption (APNAC) noted their intention to work to reform CDF practices.

Attendance Soars at Fifth Global Conference

Anti-corruption fighters gathered in Manila at the end of January, joining together to lead the way towards a corruption-free society. The Fifth Global Conference of Parliamentarians Against Corruption was the most successful and well-attended conference since GOPAC’s inception. Over 500 legislators, representatives from NGOs and civil society actors assembled for the event at the Philippines International Conference Center in Manila, Philippines from 31 January to 2 February. The three days were packed with insightful dialogs and GOPAC Members returned to their countries energized with new ideas to strengthen their fight against corruption.

The GOPAC Manila Secretariat will shortly release a full conference proceedings book. For a copy of the Declaration and Resolutions, please visit the GOPAC website.

We are also posting photos from the event on the GOPAC Facebook page and on Flickr. We invite everyone to browse the photos and tag themselves where appropriate.
