TI/TT will also place an increased emphasis on developing and implementing integrity and transparency solutions in close partnership with stakeholders from government, business and civil society. Based on the initial achievements under the 2009-2012 programme, TI/TT will continue their work to help improve anti-corruption policy and its implementation through evidence-based advocacy.
