There is increasing emphasis on good governance practice to build and maintain institutional integrity within road and transport administrations. Working Group 3 dealing with "Good Governance and Anti-Corruption Measures" within Technical Committee 1.1 on 'Performance of Transport Administrations' of the World Road Association (WRA) has focused its activities on two main elements of integrity:
the influence of the media in creating perceptions relating to institutional integrity;
the practical application of the Integrity Toolkit (which was developed in the 2008 - 2011 cycle by the WRA).
The final report of the project includes:
a discussion on the influence of media on institutional integrity,
an overview of the Integrity Toolkit and survey results on the applicability of the Toolkit, and
case studies from various countries documenting lessons learnt about the perception relating to institutional integrity created by the media and good governance and anti-corruption measures and tools.
