Project “Transparency watchdogs: road to accountable decisions in national and regional governments” aims to raise public awareness of how corruption and the lack of transparency hinder democratic development and to encourage the public to demand transparency and accountability from decision-makers.

Transparency International Latvia/Delna (TI Latvia) will implement activities aimed at promoting lobbying transparency in Latvia and providing objective data and information to different groups in society about the scope, forms and prevention possibilities of corruption. TI Latvia will empower civil society organizations at national and regional level to engage in decision making process and demand accountability and transparency from the decision makers.

TI Latvia will coordinate involvement of national and regional level organizations in advocacy of anti-corruption legislation and policies (e.g. incorporating their positions in the work of KNAB’s Public Advisory Council and Saeima’s commissions). Russian speaking and deaf Latvian citizens will be engaged in targeted activities to promote their participation. By piloting “Youth Delna” TI Latvia will promote sustainable youth education and engagement in civic anti-corruption activities, providing support and possibilities for engagement (e.g. by involving them in delivering peer-to-peer education in Latvia’s schools).

The project activities will strengthen the democratic development by improving anti-corruption and transparency regulation in Latvia, strengthening the anti-corruption community, promoting intolerance of corruption and empowering citizens to take action against it.
