Strategic Plan

TIZ has expanded its scope in the current strategic plan of 2017-2021. Previously, the main focus was anti-corruption, which still remains the niche for Transparency International, however, in the current strategic plan, more focus will be on other governance issues which act as its enablers or chokers. This is in cognizance of the fact that corruption does not exist and thrive in isolation; it is dependent on the state of governance in the country. As such a lot of efforts are targeted at enhancing/promoting good governance. The current strategic plan is looking to promote transparency, accountability, integrity, democracy, rule of law and human rights. The notion is that once these areas are improved, the prevalence of corruption will reduce.


  • Political landscape (Democratic space, Rule of law, Human rights, electoral processes);

  • Public Resource Management (e.g. procurements, public expenditure tracking,

  • Recovery of stolen resources);

  • Public Service delivery (transparency and accountability);

  • Natural resource governance (e.g. land governance, extractives sector, climate governance);

  • Public and Private Business Integrity (transparency and disclosure – Illicit financial flows, beneficial ownership, Political party financing);

  • Reforms (legal, policy and institutional – including domestication and implementation of international instruments);

  • Protection of whistle blowers

  • Citizens claiming their rights and demanding for Transparency and Accountability

In cognisance of the global nature within which TI work is premised, TIZ has made a deliberate effort to align its 2017 – 2021 strategic plan to the precipitating global strategies, namely; the Transparency International (Global) strategy 2020, The African Agenda 2063 as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). TIZ work will be linked to these regional and global agendas and contribute towards their achievement.
