Limited transparency and accountability undermines governmental capacity for the implementation of important development policies, especially for the poor and marginalized. Many citizens and civil society organisations find it difficult to play their part to improve and influence development policies. Governments sometimes fail to be responsive to the needs of the poor, and communities often lack the capabilities to secure their rights to essential services. Corruption and integrity problems remain a foremost development challenge.
Raising integrity standards of governments is an important tool to promote and sustain development outcomes. The inaugural Pro-Poor Integrity SUN Programme 2010, a ten-day course at the Central European University in Budapest, Hungary, is specifically designed to meet the need for critical and strategic approaches to successful integrity interventions and sustainable reforms that serve the development process especially in the countries that are least likely to achieve their developmental goals.
The programme is practice-oriented and focused on developing skills and tools for managing development and pro-poor programmes with integrity.
