Representatives of the civil society will monitor how the authorities in nine districts and the Gagauz autonomy implement the action plans provided by the National Strategy for Integrity and Anticorruption.

The results of the monitoring will be included in alternative reports that will be presented to the authorities, international institutions and the general public.
The respective NGO`s were selected on the basis of a competition organized within the project "Fighting corruption by strengthening integrity in the Republic of Moldova", implemented by UNDP, in partnership with the National Anticorruption Center, with the financial support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The contest was attended by 17 non-governmental organizations, which submitted 21 project ideas, out of which 9 were selected. The competition criteria included the quality and relevance of the project proposals, as well as the methodology for their implementation.
According to Olga Crivoliubic, project manager at UNDP, civil society has an important role to play in preventing corruption, which is enshrined in the UN Convention against Corruption. "NGOs can contribute effectively to monitoring the implementation of anti-corruption action plans. Thus, the associative sector can be involved in the transparency and accountability of the activity of public authorities, especially in the areas vulnerable to corruption. At the same time, NGOs can raise public awareness of the risks of corruption and encourage denunciation of corruption. "
Selected NGOs benefit the grants amount of: US $ 10,000 (for project proposals aimed at monitoring local anti-corruption action plans) and / or US $ 15,000 (for project proposals that will target sectoral anti-corruption action plans).
The project "Fighting corruption by strengthening integrity in the Republic of Moldova" is implemented by UNDP in partnership with the National Anticorruption Center and the Office of the People's Advocate, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project runs from 2019-2021 and contributes to strengthening the capacities of public and private sector actors, as well as civil society organizations, for the effective implementation of corruption prevention tools and standards.
