Strengthening Citizen’s Resistance against Prevalence of Corruption (SCRAP-C)
2017-2022; DFID; Nigeria
DFID is supporting Nigeria’s anti-corruption effort by ensuring stronger incentives not to loot government resources and changing public attitudes that will increasingly disapprove of corrupt activities. A sustainable anti-corruption strategy that delivers effective poverty reduction requires a significant societal shift in social norms and behaviour to support anti-corruption.
Strengthening Citizens Resistance against Prevalence of Corruption (SCRAP-C) is the pillar 2 of DFID Nigeria’s new multi-year Anti-Corruption in Nigeria (ACORN) programme. The aim of the of SCRAP-C is to influence and interrogate the social norms and attitudes that help corruption thrive in Nigeria with a view to effecting a social change. To achieve SCRAP-C, the programme will support a well-targeted, adaptive and innovative project that is aimed at influencing social norms and attitudes on corruption and building public demand for anti-corruption. It will focus on social marketing to create an environment that discourages corruption, civil society educational campaigns on corruption, and citizen engagement initiatives.
Itad is working with the Nigeria country programme of the international charity ActionAid, providing monitoring, evaluation and learning services across four broad areas:
- Managing a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning System for adaptive decision making.
- Support to Strategy and Strategy Development
- Support to Logframe and Theory of Change
- Support to the VFM approach
Given the wide gender and social inclusion components of the programme, our MEL work will look at the gendered impacts of social norms as well as the manifestations of corruption on poverty and disability.
